⚠️ Mastodon 2.5.2 ⚠️
Security backport release. Please update as soon as possible.
@Mastodon wait but, I'm confused. What does "backport" mean? If I'm still on 2.5.0, do I need to upgrade to 2.5.2? I had these questions last backport but I can't remember, could we clarify in the release notes?
Yes, you need to update. The only case when you wouldn't need to update is if you were closely following the master branch (unstable).
@Mastodon how do I get the version number on /about to update? I did ‘git fetch && git checkout v2.5.2’ and ‘bundle install’ from previous back port. Am I missing something?
@Mastodon seems like all the services didn't restart - I did that and it is updated now. 😀
@CobaltVelvet Boss, seems we need an update .
@Fullerism ah again. it will get done today
@CobaltVelvet Thank you~
@Mastodon For us newbie-mastodon server owners, is there a specific step by step on how to do this properly?
@shawneric @Mastodon I did like this without problems: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Running-Mastodon/Updating-Mastodon-Guide.md
@Mastodon is this just an announcement or do I have to update something on my PC?
