Version 2.2.4

Released on 2017/11/27.


If you are upgrading a cluster, you must be running CrateDB Version 1.1.3 or higher before you upgrade to 2.2.4.

If you want to perform a rolling upgrade, your current CrateDB version number must be Version 2.2.0. If you want to upgrade from a version prior to this, the upgrade will introduce all of the breaking changes listed for Version 2.2.0, and will require a full restart upgrade.


Before upgrading, you should back up your data.
