The Aegir team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the Aegir 3.x branch, after months of development. Development has been sometimes intermittent, but it is not over yet!

This release is tailored to make upcoming changes available to a wider audience than people ready to install from git, but also to make features more widely available and tested.

In the issue queues the central roadmap issue is: #1261030 [meta] Roadmap: Aegir 3.x (D7 port)

1. Major changes

  • None, mostly small bugfixes

2. Major API changes

to be determined.

3. Installing and upgrading

The canonical source of installation documentation is

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.

Note that you should upgrade to the latest 2.x release (currently: 2.4) before attempting the upgrade to 3.x..

It is still imperative that you read the upgrade path and version-specific information and follow all version-specific upgrade instructions before trying to run the upgrade script or manual upgrade.
