The Aegir team is very pleased to announce the sixth release candidate of Aegir 1.0, aka "are we there yet?"
This is yet another hotfix release to fix an issue in the upgrade.sh script and Drupal 7 support.
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 before 0.4-alpha8, including 0.3.
For users coming from the 0.4 betas or rc1/2, 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. Known issues
- Problems remain with the upgrade path. A hotfix is available in #1121406 and the tags have been rerolled so that new upgrades do not suffer from this problem
- The makefiles released with rc4, rc5 and rc6 were broken, you need to apply this patch to the aegir.make file in the provision module, see the Applying patches article on drupal.org to apply patches. The patch needs to be applied after step 5.2 in the manual install process. The Debian packages have been fixed in
1.0~rc6-2. See bug #1122942 for followup.
- Ubuntu users are having problems installing the Debian packages - we need to have a proper backtrace to debug this issue
The Debian package are still in testing mode and feedback there is appreciated.
4. New features
We have now specific maintainers for specific project areas.
A documentation spree has been started by the newly documentation team and merged in this release, so the API documentation should be more complete. In particular, we have deprecated hosting_queues_get_arguments() and hook_provision_args() that weren't used anywhere.
- #1113508: Document hosting_queues_get_arguments and hook_provision_args
- this commit introduces an prefix for the internal name of clients, so that we can respect your existing namespace policies (default is no prefix)
- #1118286: [DNS] Each services need specific function to create config files
- #1083710: [DNS] PHP 5.3 warning fixes
- #1119968: deleting a platform does not delete symbolic links - site and platform deletion should now be more robust
- #1119850: drupal 7 support broken
