The Bonfire Team have just released version 0.5.2 which is the last release to 0.5!
We will still support 0.5 with hot fixes and will move it to it's own branch as we move forward with 0.6.
We are also announcing that the 0.6 code, which we had been working on in a separate branch, has now been moved into the develop branch and this will be come the main focus of our work.
We hope you like what is coming in the 0.6 release - check out the Road Map
To upgrade Bonfire, you simply overwrite the files/folders of the latest version directly over your old files. Always backup your database and it is highly recommended that you backup your existing files/folders before, as an added precaution.
The following files are specifically recommended to backup:
- bonfire/application/core/MY_Controller.php - though there have been changes to this core file
- .htaccess - if you have installed Bonfire in a sub-directory, make sure to set the RewriteBase value in the .htaccess file
Additionally, if you have made custom themes, modules, or other files, you should back these up.
