Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

When will automated updates be available?

edited July 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Currently, Vanilla Forums's upgrade/update process is a pain. I know that in the documentation, there's a statement that automatic updates are coming, but I'm not sure when it was written, nor do I know if the feature is actually being developed.

Knowing that version 2.0.18 is coming out soon, will automatic updates be added to the new version, is it slated for a later release, or is the feature being developed at all?


  • Or maybe Patch-Files that we can use on our Linux-Servers? Like f.e. Mediawiki ...
  • I've not seen anything about it being under development for 2.0.18
  • I've not seen anything about it being under development for 2.0.18
    I'm running 2.0.18 and automatic updates are definitely not there.

    Automatic updates will not be in 2.0.18

    If I had my way, we'd be able to get them into 2.1, but I can't promise that because we have some massive development ahead of us for that release.

  • Well, at least we have some awesome new features to look forward to.

    Thanks Tim.
  • Does anyone have a shell script, or maybe using git (github) to update Vanilla that could share?

  • Is anyone updating their Vanilla installs from github? I'd just like to know how possible this is before I start doing it.
