OK, folks. Radiant 0.6 is due to be released this Saturday baring any
show stoppers. Please let us know about anything that absolutely must be
fixed between now and then.
If you can, please give the mental branch a try:
Download the rc2 gem:
Install it using:
gem install radiant-0.6.0rc2.gem
Use the Radiant command to create a fresh project:
radiant -d sqlite3 path/to/your/project
Run the new bootstrap rake task:
rake production db:bootstrap
Switch to the mental branch:
rake radiant:freeze:edge BRANCH=mental
Update your database:
rake production db:migrate
Update your public stuff:
The upgrade path should be as simple as creating a new radiant project,
importing your old database, and running rake db:migrate. Also you will
probably need to update any old plugins to use the new extension system.
There a list of extensions that are compatible with 0.6 on the Radiant
wiki (http://dev.radiantcms.org/radiant/wiki/Extensions). Remember to
backup your database before upgrading.
Please let us know if you have any problems. Particularly, if you have
problems related to upgrading.
