CKAN 2.5 released, patch versions for 2.0.x, 2.1.x, 2.2.x, 2.3.x and 2.4.x available
We are happy to announce that CKAN 2.5 is now released. In addition, new patch releases for older versions of CKAN are now available to download and install.
The 2.5 release (actually 2.5.1 as we skipped 2.5.0) offers speed improvements to the home page, searching and several other key pages and API. In addition, CKAN extensions can provide language translations in a more integrated way. And it’s now easy to customize the file uploader to suit using different cloud providers. 2.5 also includes plenty of other improvements contributed by the CKAN developer community during the past 4 months, as detailed in the CHANGELOG.
If you have customizations or extensions, we suggest you trial the upgrade first in a test environment and refer to the changes in the changelog. Upgrade instructions are below.
