Hi Everyone! You will be pleased to hear the Marketplace Rails3 upgrade has been completed! The upgrade was a success, with the site performance unaffected during the process. We had a few small issues on the day and these were quickly resolved by the team.

With the upgrade complete, we are now in a better position to take advantage of the new features in our software framework and other compatible components.

A big thank you to the community for reporting issues on the day, you all helped the upgrade run smoothly. I would also like to thank the dev team for their hard work and to the support and community teams for being on hand throughout the process.

Marketplace Rails 3 Upgrade

Dec 7

We’ve been working hard over the last month to upgrade the Marketplaces to the latest version of Ruby on Rails (the framework we use) and are now ready to deploy these changes.

The upgrade will commence on Monday the 10th of December at 8:00AM AEST. We do not expect there to be any downtime or interruptions to the Marketplaces. However, this is a major upgrade and sometimes things can go wrong. We will have extra developers on call and extra support staff at the ready to respond to any issues quickly.

If you spot an issue, please do the following:

  • Check the notices forum where we will be posting known issues as they arise
  • If your issue is not mentioned, please open a support ticket. We will verify the issue and post it to the notices forum as well as fix it as soon as possible.

While we don’t expect that there will be any issues, please be patient as we work through the upgrade. See you on the other side, we’ll keep you updated ;)
