Octopus 2019.7

Highlights

Octopus 2019.7 is a significant release even though it doesn't include any user-facing features. It includes technical changes to retarget Octopus Deploy to .NET Framework 4.7.2 and .NET Core 2.2 so Octopus can run natively on Linux and in Linux containers. This change is initially for Octopus Cloud and it will be extended to Octopus self-hosted in the future.

Watch our blog for some great technical blog posts on what this involved and our lessons learned.

Breaking changes

Most customers can upgrade directly to Octopus Server 2019.7, except those hosting Octopus Server on Windows Server 2008 SP2. This blog post has more details about who will be affected, and what you can do to upgrade.

Don't worry, the Octopus Server installer will prevent you from accidentally upgrading if your host operating system will not be supported.
