Hi all,

We are happy to announce that the new CKAN 2.1 version is available to
download and install.

This version adds exciting new features, including an interface for
bulk dataset updates, improved previews for text files, a new
redesigned dashboard and significant improvements to the
documentation. Have a look at the changelog [1] for a full list of all
new features and fixes, and play around on our demo site which has
been also updated:


The new version is available as usual to install from packages or
source, depending on your needs. Full install instructions can be
found here:


If you want to upgrade from a previous release, have a look at the
upgrade documentation:


Apart from the new 2.1 version, there are new patch releases available
for previous CKAN versions that fix bugs and security issues. Users
are strongly encouraged to upgrade to the latest patch release for the
CKAN version they are using, as this is the only one that will be
supported (remember that patch releases don't contain backwards
incompatible changes). See the release policy [2] for more details.

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