❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1: deployments during maintenance window - During the scheduled maintenance window, ALL D9 SaaS deployments will be blocked while we deploy to the D9 Production branches. - While the production block is on, you will still be able to develop and deploy to non-production feature branches. - PaaS and D7 deployments schedules are not impacted.
❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: update local environments - Ensure you update your local environments to the latest release. Not rebasing your codebase results in mismatched database configuration causing errors in forklifts and deployments.
❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 3: for customers with configuration management enabled - The latest configuration from your production database has been created for you in GitLab in a branch called action-required/latest-config-export. - You need to review and test the changes in the merge request. Once you are satisfied, please check the “Delete source branch” box and click “Merge”. - This MUST be done before any new commits. - All subsequent deployments will be blocked in the CI pipeline until this merge request branch is deleted - Not merging the latest configuration provided could result in your new database configuration reverting to an older version when you next deploy, potentially causing issues for your website. - If no merge request is lodged after a release then no configuration has changed and no further action is required.
Information for PaaS customers - If you use the GovCMS D9 distribution. You should aim to apply this update to your distribution as soon as possible. - Updated files will be available from https://github.com/govCMS/GovCMS/releases/tag/2.24.0 - If you manage your own distribution, this core release should have been assessed and addressed.
