Upgrade

Post by Atlantic »

As the scroll at the top of the page says, we will be upgrading the Forums to version 3.3.3 (from its current version, 3.3.0) on Friday at 2am, Eastern time. That will be 0600 UTC for our international users. Starting at this time, the Forums will be unavailable for approximately two hours. There is no action expected or required for any user.

This upgrade is expected to correct a problem with the deletion of private messages, allowing that process to become much more efficient, and a correction to the display of drop-down menus when viewing the Forums on a phone. Any other changes will be noted both in this topic and in the FAQ.

The upgrade was unable to be completed as scheduled last night. We will be claiming an emergency after-hours maintenance window during this weekend instead. Please be aware of this possibility if you happen to be on after midnight Eastern time on any day this weekend.

We will post again when the upgrade has been completed.

Looks like everything is complete and was successful. The period of outage lasted from about 0200-0320 (0600-0720 UTC) on 10 April.

Private messages work as expected. I haven't yet tried the Forums on a phone.

Let us know here if you experience any unexpected behavior.
