! Important
Please note that bitweaver version 2 has not been released yet and this is currently a page to collect notes about the upgrade procedure. Please do not use any of the informtion on this page yet!

! Why we need this
We haven't had a release of bitweaver in a very long time. This is largely down to the fact that we want to provide you with a solid product. Also, we don't allow database changes between major releases, which means that we have to get the database just right. This provides you with a stable environment to work with but unfortunately means that release cycles can be slower.

Due to the long time, an uncountable number of things have been improved, but it also means that the upgrade process might be a bit more hands-on depending on your setup.

! Generic Upgrade Instructions
!! Database and Files
To upgrade the filebase from R1 to R2 please follow the steps outlined on the ((bitweaverUpgrade)) page. There you will find instructions on how to backup your database and how to replace the old files with the new ones.

!! Installer
Once you have completed the above, please point your browser to:
The installer will guide you through the upgrade process. Once the upgrade is complete, you can view instructions on what further steps are required below. depending on your setup, you might already be done!

! Package specific notes
!! Themes
Themes have undergone some fundamental changes. We now allow for dynamic layouts and for modules in all 4 areas around the center content. These changes might cause minor issues with your existing custom themes. We will try to put up a page about the details of the changes soon or you can visit us on ((ConnectingToIRC|IRC)).

!! NexusPackage
If you are using nexus on your homepage and you are using a nexus menu in the top bar, upgrading to R2 will probably cause some problems. the easiest way to resolve these is to go to the ''Administration > Nexus > Settings'' screen and rewrite the menu cache. This will __not__ restore the menu yet though. Now you need to go to the ''Adminstration > Themes > Manage Layouts'' page. Here you need to enable modules in the top layout area in the ''Column Control'' tab. After that you can assign your nexus menu to the top bar. Now you should have the old menu back in the top bar.

!! CategoriesPackage
Categories are now no longer part of the default bitweaver release. If you want to continue using categories, please download a version [/builds|here].
