Octopus 2019.2


Highlights

This fast lane release is our second minor 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.

User Invitations into Space Teams

We have added the ability to invite new users into Teams that are owned by Spaces. Previously, new Users could only be invited into System-level Teams, but now Spaces and Space Managers can be self sufficient by inviting new Users without needing to ask a more privileged user to first invite the user into a System team.

Improved Date Display

We've done some renovations around how we handle and display dates. Now, we display dates in your local timezone where possible, and if that isn't possible, we include the timezone, so it's much easier to tell when something happened if you're in a distributed team or in a different timezone to your Octopus Server. Unfortunately, this has meant we've had to make some breaking changes, but we believe the impact will be low.

Breaking Changes

  • The LastSeen property on octopusservernodes/ping now returns an ISO8601 date instead of a formatted string
  • The human-readable Completed date on a Task is now formatted with a timezone
  • The human-readable Published date on a Package is now formatted with a timezone
  • The Rank, LastSeen and IsOffline properties have been removed from the /api/OctopusServerNodes/{id} endpoint, and are now available from a new endpoint /api/OctopusServerNodes/summary
  • The EffectiveExpiryDate on the /api/licenses/licenses-current-status endpoint is now formatted with a Date (yyyy-MM-dd) rather than DateTimeOffset data type.
  • The third party libraries we use to read certificates have been upgraded to newer versions which include tighter certificate verification. This may reject incorrectly formatted certificates.

As this release contains database changes, a database backup is recommended before upgrading. Please ensure you review the steps for upgrading Octopus.
