As the end user of the software tool, you may want to use the latest version of the software. This is also the wish of software vendor as well! Delivering MyCollab community version regularly to the community is our challenge as well. We always want the user to use the latest version of MyCollab to avoid the bugs of the old versions or security bug fixes. We still see there are bug reports from the very old MyCollab versions from users. There are several issues are well-known ones and we leave them because their importance is slow, but most of reported issues are fixed in the newer versions, but users are not aware. This issue causes the end users can not access the latest features, bug fixes, and security prevention of MyCollab if they revisit the download page and upgrade MyCollab, but most of cases they don’t.
From the MyCollab 5.0.0, we added the new notification to MyCollab users that their version is old, and the link of a new version of MyCollab. The site admin needs to follow steps to perform the upgrade by himself. Haft of them feel uncomfortable while we release MyCollab regularly, they simply ignore the message. To solve this issue, we added the auto upgrade process from MyCollab 5.0.4 https://www.mycollab.com/mycollab-5-0-4-is-released/. Whenever we have a new version, a popup will show up, tell the site owner there is a newer MyCollab version, and ask him to upgrade from the current version
If the site owner choose auto upgrade, then MyCollab will automatically download the latest distribution, install and restart the server
Is it simple, right? Deploying an enterprise open source Java program may be as simple as a PHP website like WordPress. You do not need to follow many steps of instructions, debug and endless hours to make it run!
