Pydio 6 beta1 (5.3.3) - Dev Release

Created on 2014/09/21
Release Type: 

This is a development release, but it is already pretty stable, and hopefully next one will be final. Upgrading is available on dev channel from both last dev release (5.3.2) and stable v5.2.3: upgrading from v5.2.3 stable should be done in a staging environment only, but would it be helpful to test it and report us feedbacks about migration process.

Thanks again to all contributors!

Upgrade Process

Archive installations (zip/tar.gz)

  • First switch the "Update Engine" channel (in the plugin options) to the "Development" channel.
  • From 5.3.2 (dev) : automatic with in-app upgrade, only files are impacted.
  • From 5.2.3 (stable) : automatic with in-app upgrade. HOWEVER, make sure to backup both your DB and your files.

Linux packages (deb/rpm)

  • Package is available in the testing channel for both repositories.
    Database migration is not performed automatically, please use the script corresponding to your DB to manually upgrade.

REMARK ABOUT SHARING: Old share links will be still active, but user will have to migrate them manually. As the new ones allow to manually set the final hash of the link, users will have to stop public links, recreate them, and change the hash.

Known Issues

  • User dashboard sometimes need some manual resizing to have all panel appear.
