Hi all,

We are happy to announce that the new patch releases for CKAN 2.3.x
and 2.4.x are now available to download and install.

These patch releases fix important bugs and security issues, so users
are strongly encouraged to upgrade to the latest patch release for the
CKAN version they are using.

Patch release upgrades are very straight-forward and do not contain
any backwards incompatible changes or involve any change in the
requirements, database or Solr schema. In this particular occasion we
had to include some changes that have a slim chance of causing

#2554 fixes a regression where `group_list` and `organization_list`
were returning extra additional fields by default, causing performance
issues. This is now fixed, so the output for these actions no longer
returns `users`, `extras`, etc. as it did on 2.4.0. Also, on the
homepage template the `c.groups` and `c.group_package_stuff` context
variables are no longer available, but its very unlikely that you are
using them.

As stated in the release policy [1], the latest patch release is the
only one officially supported.

For details on how to upgrade, see the following links depending on
your install method:

* Package upgrade:

If you find any problem, let us know in the mailing list or the IRC channel.
