Breaking changes caused by [DT-035693] Less files structure refactoring
As part of the change included for the DT, the storage location for LESS files will be moved. This will cause custom LESS files to be lost upon upgrading. It is recommended that users create a backup of any custom LESS files that were created.

Changes that were made using the Theme Editor will persist upon upgrading.
