Automatic updating

I noticed on the “try” site, an update notification will appear when a new version is available. Is that part of the core build or something separate? Would prefer to have automatic updates than reinstalling the backend and frontend manually.

That’s part of the build but a frontend feature. All frontend files are aggressively cached with a service worker. When the service worker notices the assets on the server changed, it will download the new assets in the background and prompt you to reload the page so they get used.

I have a watcher on try which checks every if there’s a new docker image available and replaces the container with the new image.

@mon Right, I forgot that. Just pushed the tag, the CI should release the version soon (maybe ~20min).
