If you update EXT:news to a newer version, please read this section carefully!


EXT:news follows the semantic versioning approach.

It uses a 3-number versioning scheme: <major>.<minor>.<patch>

  • Major: Breaking changes
  • Minor: New functionality, backwards compatible (without breaking changes)
  • Patch: Bug fixes (without breaking changes)

Before an update

Before you start the update procedure, please read the changelog of all versions which have been released in the meantime! You can find those in the manual here.

Furthermore it is always a good idea to do updates on a dedicated test installation or at least create a database backup.
