We want to upgrade our version of octopus deploy from version 4.0.10 to the latest version, is there any release notes / a list of breaking changes for each release that someone can point me to.
Also If you have any other advice/resources that you think would be relevant feel free to post below.
Thanks in advance
Thanks for getting in touch!
You can see all of the changes made between your version and the latest here: https://octopus.com/downloads/compare?from=4.0.10&to=2019.12.0
I’ve set it to compare against the latest LTS release, but you can change it to the latest fast lane if desired.
We have a full upgrade guide that would be worth familiarizing yourself with too: https://octopus.com/docs/administration/upgrading/guide
The only other advice I would offer is that as you are going to be upgrading through many versions, if possible, cloning your current Octopus Server would allow you to run through the entire upgrade with zero risk or downtime and be confident in the process.
I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.
Hey @paul.calvert, this information is exactly what i am looking for, very much appreciated.
1 last thing that i am struggling to find, is it possible to upgrade in steps say from version 4 to 2018.5, 2019.5 to 2019.12 (LTS).
Where would I find the different versions of the octopus deploy installer?
again thanks a lot for the information, very much appreciated.
Absolutely, upgrading in stages is perfectly fine. Sticking to LTS versions may be the best idea as they are our “stable” releases.
If you scroll to the bottom of https://octopus.com/downloads you’ll see a link to access all previous versions.
