We are happy to announce that CKAN 2.4 is now released. In addition, new patch releases for older versions of CKAN are now available to download and install.
The 2.4 release brings a way to set the CKAN config via environment variables and via the API, which is useful for automated deployment setups. 2.4 also includes plenty of other improvements contributed by the CKAN developer community during the past 4 months, as detailed in the 2.4.0 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.
