The Aegir team is happy to release the second stable release in the 1.x branch. We have found two critical bugs during the more massive deployment of 1.0 and figured we could share the fixes with the community.
The major changes here are that 1.0 had broken the upgrade of Drupal 5 sites and was still allowing duplicate sites to be created under some circumstances.
1. Installing and upgrading
The canonical source of installation documentation is on the community site at:
In a similar fashion, the upgrade documentation is:
It is still imperative that you read the the upgrade path and version-specific information and follow all version-specific upgrade instructions before trying to run the upgrade script or manual upgrade. This especially applies to users upgrading from releases prior to 0.4-alpha8, including 0.3.
For users coming from the 0.4 betas or recent rc releases, there are unlikely to be any version-specific manual steps required to upgrade, but you should make a habit of reading them anyway just to make sure. No-one likes a nasty surprise!
2. Need help?
If you struggle to install or upgrade your Aegir system, you have a number of options available to you for getting help.

Thanks to our awesome community for their help, support and encouragement as always! Enjoy the new release :)
3. New features
As per our maintenance policy, we have keep new functionalities to a minimum. We did however, give in and merged the exportable backups feature in 1.1.
