The upgrading and installation documentation has already been updated for 2.2.0. If you have not yet upgraded to ChiliProject 2, make sure to follow the upgrading instructions in the release notes.

What’s Next?

This is the fourth release in our 2.0.0 series so we will continue to support it with monthly bugfix releases until around December 2011. Around that time the next major ChiliProject version will be released (3.0.0).

We are working on making ChiliProject leaner by removing custom code and using standard functionality from various gems instead. Based on that we are going to make ChiliProject much easier to install and upgrade. We are also going to introduce the new default theme which — besides looking great — will provide a much better user experience.

If you’re interested in participating or contributing to ChiliProject, please leave a comment below or post to our forums. This time is a great time to start contributing to the project and we would love to have your help with all aspects of ChiliProject.

In closing, go and download ChiliProject 2.2.0 now.
