Is Foreman 1.24 -> 2.0 a major upgrade?

Hi folks,

We’re still running Foreman 1.24 and we need to upgrade to Foreman 2.x. Is this upgrade path considered a major upgrade for end users? I don’t really see much in the 2.0 that would impact us and so I’m confused why the semver bump from 1.x to 2.x.

Not at all, it’s like Linux 3.0.

Having said that, BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP.

We did take the opportunity in 2.0 to drop a few more things. Most notable may be MySQL which can affect some deployments. Just because they may be breaking to some, doesn’t mean it’s a breaking change for all. They are listed in the release notes and do read the upgrade warnings.

All in all, as @lzap said it was mostly to indicate we’re far from Foreman 1.0. In the future we will probably do more. We’ve been talking about moving Puppet integration to a plugin and making that Foreman 3.0. Mostly because that will affect the API.
