Unfortunately, while I can't say we'll stop developing as fast, I've made upgrading a little easier. Latest NodeBB build (or for those on version releases, this will apply as of v0.3.0) will allow you to run
./nodebb upgrade, which should take care of upgrading plugins/themes, installing any missing packages, and migrating the database if necessary.
$ git pull # back up your database first! $ ./nodebb upgrade
This really helps save time. Thanks @julian!
No worries @trevor
The hard part is really still in resolving conflicts when you
git pull, however...!
I upgraded with no problems.
