New Features

Octopus 2018.2 brings a number of exciting new features including the much requested step to deploy a release, the ability to deploy AWS CloudFormation templates, delete existing CloudFormation stacks, and run scripts with the AWS CLI.

Breaking Changes

If you are using an older version of Octopus.Client.dll to access /api/feeds/all then this will now error. You will need to update to >= 4.30.7 of Octopus.Client. The reason for this is that we have added a new feed type for releases of Octopus projects, to support the new Deploy Release step.

In anticipation of some upcoming new feed types we have hit the point where we were forced to revisit how we expose the packages API for external feeds, and how we store cached packages for deployments. Unless you are hitting the Octopus API directly to search through your external feeds or rely on specific naming of the cached packages, then there should be almost no impact to you. One side effect of the change to package cache names is that the current packages cache on the server and tentacles will be no longer checked so new deloyments will use the new package names. More details about these changes are available in the GitHub tickets "Packages API does not meet the requirements of our expanding feed types #4114" and "Modify the cache naming format to allow for new feed formats #4211".

Upgrading

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.
