You can upgrade to 1.3.x from as far back as 1.1.x according to a response from Sean in an earlier thread.

Thanks Russell for quick reply

Regarding intermediate upgrade
I was under the impression that Riak upgrades are supported from one version behind so 1.0 -> 1.1, 1.1 -> 1.2
1.2 -> 1.3.x are allowed but 1.1 -> 1.3 is not
Am I wrong here?
I could not find relevant info in Rolling Upgrades doc, I think I've read it somewhere on mailing list.

Yes, please run it on every node.

Yes. You should.
