My 2nd post 🙂
@dunlix yes we are yet to plan the upgrade. Can you share with me a list of new features we can see in the latest release? I will need to do a code review with my team to run impact analysis on upgrading to the latest version.
I have reviewed the release notes, but they are too technical for me to understand
@esha you should really upgrade more often as you're missing out on several security fixes.
You can check the blog for more high level overviews for each release:
@pitaj thanks a ton. This is exactly what I have been looking for past months
@dunlix yes we are yet to plan the upgrade. Issue is, we have made a lot of customizations in core NodeBB to match our requirements. We are working on impact analysis to see what code breaks and fixes we can encounter with the latest upgrade.
@esha you could backup your database, your NodeBB uploads folder (as seen in docs) and the entire NodeBB root folder. Then upgrade as usual, and if anything breaks, then simply restore everything from the backup.
What did you change in core?
@dunlix i really appreciate your support. Below are few files in which we have made changes
and many more like these core files.
The easiest way is to use git to apply the same changes to the new files.
You can create a patch and then apply that patch to an upgraded clone of the repository. Git will tell you when conflicts occur and you can fix those manually.
Do note this is exactly why we recommend using a plugin for customization: it's much easier to keep plugins up to date than modify your customizations to core every time we modify the file.
