Updating

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

Versioning

EXT:news follows the approach of Fear-Driven Versioning.

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

  • Major: Major breaking changes
  • Minor: Minor breaking changes
  • Patch: No 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.
