Critical Update Notes

2.6.0 Update

Coronium Core version 2.6.0 introduces some major architectural changes to the underlying system to lay the groundwork for some current and future enhancements.

If at all possible it is reccomended to run a fresh install and import your data and projects. If this is not an option, be sure to carefully read the notes that follow so your update will go smoothly.

Live Apps

If you currently have live apps running on v2.5.0 you can still update your server, but you will be unable to use any of the new features until you redeploy your application with the new Coronium Core Plugin set to version 2 (see core.init). All of the following information needs to be understood as well before updating.

Users Data

Version 2.6.0 now supports logins by email address. This means that no two users in the same scope can have the same email address in the Users system.

If you currently have users in the same scope with the same email address, certain functionality like users.sendPasswordReset, as well as, logging in by email address, will not work properly. Other validation issues will also arise.

You will need to clean up Users that have this issue before updating. If you have questions on how to do this, visit the support forum.

Scopes

With the addition of Scope Permissions, scopes are being more fully intergrated into the Webmin system.

When you first update, you will need to visit the Scopes section in the Webmin and click the Update Cache button to import your current scopes. You will then be able to edit permissions on them, if needed.

More enhancements to scopes management are coming in future updates.

Plugin Version

Because the Corona plugin system does not support multiple plugin versions internally, you must now supply a version parameter to the client-side core.init method.

For server features included in v2.6.0 or better, you must set the plugin version number to 2.

core.init({
  version = 2,
  server = "https://<coronium-host-address>",
  key = "<coronium-server-key>",
  scope = "Space Race"
})
