Recently I upgraded my Discourse instance from 1.9.4 to 2.0.2+4 using admin console in web UI. The weird thing was version: stable enabled in app.yml. Obviously the updater has ignored this setting .
Two weeks ago I did the same with another instance and the updater allowed me to renew my forum to version 2.0.1 only. After 2.0.2 was published, the updater warned that I need to run rebuild from cmd. Today I expected that the same upgrade will be performed from 1.9.4 to 2.0.1. But actually I got latest 2.0.2+4…
That’s my choice to stay on stable branch, so I would like not to start discussing latest branch is the best etc. Just inform the team that the important line in app.yml was ignored during upgrade.
