Here at Lime Technology we manage two release branches: stable and next. The stable branch is for those users who want better tested, though less frequent releases. The next branch is where all new development, called prereleases, takes place.
To install a prerelease:
- If you are running a 6.4 stable release or newer, go to the Tools/UpdateOS page and select the Next branch.
If you are running an earlier stable release, to get on the next release branch, install this plugin:
New prereleases may be installed using Check for updates on the Tools/UpdateOS page.
It must be assumed that lurking bugs may exist in prereleases that can cause instability.
If a prerelease carries a risk of data loss, that will be separately noted in the release notes. Our intent however, is that each prerelease is fully functional. Each prerelease update requires a server reboot.
- Please only report bugs/issues that are unique to the prerelease.
- Important: if possible, please include information that describes how to reproduce the bug/issue.
Please visit Tools/Diagnostics and attach the diagnostics.zip file to your post.
Plugins: A number of issues that can occur on a system could be the result of installed plugins that are not officially supported by Lime Technology. Issues with plugins should be discussed in their respective forums and not posted here for repair. If you're using ANY plugins on your system, please reboot in Safe Mode and see if the issue you're having still exists. If so, post a report, but if not, try adding plugins back one by one until the issue occurs again. Then report the issue in the relevant plugin thread.
Bare Metal Only: Due to resource constraints we cannot spend any time on issues where unRAID OS is running in a Virtual Machine of any kind.
