CKAN 2.6.0 released, patch versions for 2.3.x, 2.4.x and 2.5.x available
We are happy to announce that CKAN 2.6.0 is now released. In addition, new patch releases for older versions of CKAN are now available to download and install.
The 2.6.0 release includes improvements on how private datasets are shown on search results, as well as several other minor improvements and over 50 bug fixes. You can check all individual changes on the CHANGELOG. Thank you very much to all the almost 30 community members that have submitted patches since the last release.
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. As there aren’t many major changes since the last version upgrading should be relatively straight-forward.
Note that as previously announced, starting from this version, CKAN requires at least Python 2.7 and Postgres 9.2.
