Update The upgrade was done, DB migrations took around 5 minutes. We’ll keep an eye out for (new) issues but for now it seems to be OK.
Original message We will upgrade lemmy.world to 0.18.3 today at 20:00 UTC+2 (Check what this isn in your timezone). Expect the site to be down for a few minutes. ““Edit”” I was warned it could be more than a few minutes. The database update might even take 30 minutes or longer.
Release notes for 0.18.3 can be found here: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md
(This is unrelated to the downtimes we experienced lately, those are caused by attacks that we’re still looking into mitigating. Sorry for those)
