Changes since Kiwi TCMS 6.7
- Update Django from 2.2 to 2.2.1
- Update django-simple-history from 2.7.0 to 2.7.2
- Update django-grappelli from 2.12.2 to 2.12.3
- Update psycopg2 from 2.8 to 2.8.2
- Update pygithub from 1.43.6 to 1.43.7
- Upgrade pip and setuptools inside Docker image
- Update documentation with newer screenshots and updated Tutotial. Fixes Issue #837 (@Prome88)
- Document how to enable public read-only views
- Remove deprecated documentation section about Bugzilla authentication
- Install PostgreSQL libraries in Docker image which makes it easier to switch the DB backend without rebuilding the entire image
- Remove npm, libxml2-devel and libxslt-devel from Docker image
- Database engine configuration now respects the KIWI_DB_ENGINE environment variable which defaults to django.db.backends.mysql. This will make it easier for admins to change DB engine by updating their docker-compose.yml
- Pin bootstrap-switch to version 3.3.4 in package.json. Fixes Issue #916
- Don't use Site.objects.get_current() because it has an internal cache and causes email notifications from tenants to use the wrong URL
- More changes around renaming of TestCaseRun to TestExecution
During the past week we have silently launched Kiwi TCMS on GitHub Marketplace. Free plans will be redirected to public.tenant.kiwitcms.org while paid plans will be hosted under *.tenant.kiwitcms.org sub-domains!
Our team is still working on all requirements for GitHub integration and we will issue a formal statement when ready!
How to upgrade
If you are using Kiwi TCMS as a Docker container then:
cd Kiwi/ git pull docker-compose down docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi docker pull centos/mariadb docker-compose up -d docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate
Don't forget to backup before upgrade!
WARNING: kiwitcms/kiwi:latest and docker-compose.yml will always point to the latest available version! If you have to upgrade in steps, e.g. between several intermediate releases, you have to modify the above workflow:
# starting from an older Kiwi TCMS version docker-compose down docker pull kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version> edit docker-compose.yml to use kiwitcms/kiwi:<next_upgrade_version> docker-compose up -d docker exec -it kiwi_web /Kiwi/manage.py migrate # repeat until you have reached latest
