When updating to v2.1 and you see this error in the console:

Assets/GameDataEditor/Editor/CodeGen/GDECodeGenWindow.cs(7,66): error CS0117: 'GDEManagerWindowBase' does not contain a definition for 'rootMenuLocation'

There are two files you need to delete:

GameDataEditor/Editor/CodeGen/GDECodeGenWindow.cs
GameDataEditor/Editor/GDELinks.cs

Some code was moved around and those files we renamed and/or removed from GDE v2.1. Delete them and everything will be working again.
