The Aegir team is proud to announce the eleventh release in the stable 1.x release branch! This release ships a moderately critical security fix and one small upgrade bug with secret SSL certificates. Everyone is encouraged to upgrade.
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 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. Known issues
Aegir 1.x depends on Drush 4.5 or 4.6, which are available only in Debian squeeze backports (old stable!), which may make fresh installs or careless upgrades impossible. To workaround this issue, install the Drush package directly from backports:
wget http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/pool/main/d/drush/drush_4.5... dpkg -i drush_4.5-2~bpo60+1_all.deb

No new feature.
5. Security fixes
- fix mild security issue with login-reset links (#1220062)
- security fix: SA-CORE-2013-003, files/ protection (#2141799)
6. Bug fixes
- fix upgrades if the SSL certificates are symlinks to files not readable by Aegir, a rare but legitimate use-case, see #2046249 for more information.
