    Downtime coming

    I have just been preparing the files to update us from Dragonflycms 9.0.4.0 to 9.0.5.0. The site may be down for a couple of hours in the next day or so. A site maintenance page will be posted to warn you of this when you try to logon. I am currently backing up the site and will give you more idea of when I plan to do this in the near future.

    Re: Downtime coming

    Whats changed? Can you post a changelog? What happens to russdevs's custom hacks and fixes? Have they been submitted upstream and incorporated into the release or will he have to reapply them?

    This is what I'm looking at. Most of the fixes have been in the theme, which won't be changed.

    Re: Downtime coming

    compliing list of changes fairly easy has posted in dev section so just to go through it as said most of stuff is in themes

    the other hacks fairly easy to add again as documented it...

    was wondering is it worth me creating some kind of hack system so i put all the hacks as indervial sub routines in php file and then if want to add hack just inc that php statement and then run routine?

    that way hacks are easier to add after upgrades and easier to document..

    No, its even easier to submit your hacks to the Dragonfly devs and put into the main distrobution. That way you don't have to maintain them any more, the Dragonfly devs will do it for you.

    I know with Linux, I use patch and diff to maintain out of tree patches for the kernel. You perhaps could do similar?

    Re: Downtime coming

    I'm going to do the patch in a couple of weeks (date TBC) and use works connection to prevent too much downtime. We will make a list and agree on it as regards to which files should be re-edited\applied after patching.
