Yet another Alfresco Community upgrade tutorial: from 4.0.d to 4.2.f.

The task to upgrade Alfresco (Community or Enterprise) from a version to another more recent, has to follow a clear and precise path. In every case it is always a critical task and in some cases could be a serious problem for the Organizations (of course this is more critical for Community Editions). In some cases the only possible solution is an Alfresco-to-Alfresco migration instead of an upgrade… but this is another scenario.

In this tutorial is described a step-by-step approach to an upgrade from an Alfresco Community Edition v4.0.d to v4.2.f in one only upgrade step. In every case, even if the involved versions are different, the approach is always the same discussed here.

Alfresco roadmap for the next 12 months

roadmapAfter some requests from some users, the new Alfresco roadmap has been released in the official wiki. This roadmap doesn’t seems to be like the others of the past.

I read that the amount of topics are less than the past. By the way, each topic seems to be more detailed and “complete” (in the past most of the items were less specific than this). Comparing with the past roadmaps I can read a lot of “Enterprise only” in some important new features.

Have your own opinion reading the complete roadmap below.

As usual, all the presentations will happen on Saturday, 5th of October, but the event starts on friday evening – yes, everyone knows that the main idea of the event is fun, sun, networking and drinks. So we’ll be meeting on friday evening. Totally optional, like the last day, but… I wouldn’t miss it if I were you. 😉
