1.5 release notes


The Aegir team is happy to release the sixth stable release in the 1.x branch.

This release fixes not being able to install Drupal 7.8 sites on PHP 5.2, an issue causing automatic installations to fail and other minor fixes.

We recommend you upgrade your Aegir system.

1. Another special note for users of the Debian packages

We've moved the location of the Aegir packages, so you must update your apt configuration. Further details can be found the in original announcement of this change: Debian archive migrated to

The Debian packages also install Drush Make using a package rather than a manual download. If upgrading, you may be prompted to remove your current installation of Drush Make to continue.

2. 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 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!

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.
