The release notes explain how to upgrade existing Beta 2 installations to RC1. We added many new features that require some manual adjustments to be effective on existing installations, so read them carefully!
If you want to contribute to the development and tests of the Beta 2 upgrade procedures:
install a new cluster and configure a new user domain
go to Settings > Software repositories and enable the Testing switch
go to Software center page and update the core components
run the manual upgrade commands, as explained by the release notes
share feedbacks here!
As we are leaving the Beta and entering the RC stage, next releases are expected to shift focus from development of new features to fixing bugs. Read: no more manual upgrade procedures, hopefully
Recall the upcoming online meeting, to see how to run generic containers on NS8:
