A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Waypoint documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
»Upgrading to Waypoint 0.5.0 from 0.4.x
Waypoint 0.4.x can be upgraded to Waypoint 0.5.0 using a standard upgrade.
There are no breaking changes in the protocol or
waypoint.hcl configuration file. All
Waypoint components (CLI, entrypoint, and server) are forwards and backwards
compatible but we encourge users to have all components on the same version.
waypoint install uses the
hashicorp/waypoint:latest container image for
Kubernetes, Nomad, ECS, and Docker. When upgrading, your platform may require
you to pull the latest image instead of using a cache.
Kubernetes and Nomad both specify an "always pull" policy for
so restarting the Deployment or Job should pull the latest released version.
Docker may require an explicit
docker pull and container recreate.
»Verifying the Server Version with the UI
You can verify the server version by loading the UI and looking at the footer.
You should see a version starting with
v0.5. If you see an earlier version,
your platform may be using an old cached image.
»Verifying the Server Version with the CLI
You can verify both the CLI version and server version by running:
$ waypoint version CLI: v0.5.0 (622f37bd1) Server: v0.5.0
