Highlights

This release is our first fast lane release after the 2018.10 LTS release with long term support. If you're not sure what this means to you, please read the announcement to help decide which lane works best for you.

Even though it's been released at the start of January 2019, its a wrap up of all the work we did at the end of 2018. It mainly contains UI updates, but also a bunch of important fixes.

Database performance updates

At the end of the installation process, Octopus will rebuild or reorganize database indexes that are fragmented to ensure the database performs at its best. This may take some time, depending on the size of your database.

As normal, all of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.
