DRAFT: 1.10 release notes

The Aegir team is proud to announce the tenth release in the stable 1.x release branch! This release ships two minor security fixes and various bugfixes that have accumulated in the issue queue since the 1.9 release.

We also want to announce that ergonlogic and helmo have joined the list of core maintainers supporting the core development of the Aegir project. Along with the existing commitments of the Aegir core maintainer team, Aegir is well assured of continuous development and long term maintenance.

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 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 :)
