Aegir 3.2

The Aegir team is proud to announce the third release in the stable 3.x branch!

This release ships with a security fix for Drupal core. Everyone is encouraged to upgrade.

This release ships with UI and backend fixes and improvements. In addition, hosting_civicrm support has been added to the Aegir distribution as part of the "Golden contrib" initiative. Note that this may entail additional manual intervention during the upgrade to 3.2, if you have already bee using CiviCRM support in Aegir 3. See "Known Issues" below for details.

  • Provision: #1194602: [meta] Support the hosting of Drupal 8 sites ("Status: Needs work")

In this release, we have included hosting_civicrm in the Aegir distribution. In preparation, we merged back-end components into the front-end module. Aegir 3.x supports this adding search paths in /var/aegir/.drush/drushrc.php. If you are already running hosting_civicrm in Aegir 3.x with the provision_civicrm code deployed in /var/aegir/.drush/provision_civicrm, then you should remove that directory prior to upgrading.
