1.0-rc6 release notes


1.0-rc6 release notes


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 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:

Within those sections you'll find step-by-step instructions for performing both manual and automatic upgrade processes.

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.

Consult this page for more information:

Thanks to our awesome community for their help, support and encouragement as always! Enjoy the new release :)

3. Known issues

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.

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
