Koji 1.20.1 Release notes¶
This is first regular minor release. We’re trying new release cycle. It should involve of regular releases (1.x.0) roughly every three months. In between there should be one minor release (1.x.1) with bugfixes and documentation updates.
Overall policy for minor release is, that it shouldn’t contain anything changing API or any compatibility features. Neither it should touch the db schema. Client has to be completely compatible with 1.x.0 version.
Reason to introduce them is to make quicker delivery of simple fixes to end users. As an administrator of koji instance you’re free to not/update as you wish. There also needs to be clear update path from 1.x via 1.x.1 to 1.x+1.
Anyway, if some security or important bugfix is found anywhere during 1.x cycle, we’re going to do additional minor release addressing this problem. We will announce it properly through standard channels (mainly koji-devel mailing list).
All changes can be found at pagure. Most important changes are listed here.
