This is the first minor release of Xibo 1.8 Series. Included in this release are 40 bugs and small enhancements.
This release is a bug fix release for the 1.8 stable series. If you are upgrading from 1.4, 1.6 or 1.7 please refer to the 1.8.0 release notes for a detailed list of changes and upgrade notes.
The CMS can be run without Docker, but this is not a supported configuration. Installs without Docker are called Custom/Manual Installs and further details can be found here. The release archive for a manual install can be downloaded from GitHub.
We recommend using the 1.8.0 Windows Player with this release. The 1.7.6 or later version of the Windows Display Player is also compatible with this CMS, but will not run the latest features.
Switching to Docker
Our recommended configuration for 1.8 series on ward will be based on Docker and from 1.8.0-rc3 the focus of the documentation has changed to reflect this. If you would like to try 1.8.0-rc3 by upgrading your existing 1.7 installation, we recommend switching to Docker. Please refer to the upgrade guide for more information.
This release supports upgrades from 1.7.0 onwards. If you are running a release prior to 1.7.0 then please upgrade to 1.7.9 first.
Follow the upgrade instructions to complete the upgrade.
For Docker installations of 1.8, please see the "Changes to Docker" section above.
