This section describes the Open edX Ficus release. Note that edX no longer supports the Ficus relesae.

The Open edX Ficus release contains several new features for learners, course teams, and developers. For more information, see Open edX Ficus Release.

2.10.2. What Is the Ficus Git Tag?#

2.10.3. Upgrading to a Subsequent Ficus Release#

Occasionally, we release updates to Ficus. For example, the second release of Ficus is open-release/ficus.2. The steps to upgrade differ based on your original installation method. Upgrading a Vagrant Installation#

Devstack and Fullstack are installed using Vagrant. To upgrade from one Ficus release to another, run the following commands in the host operating system:

$ export OPENEDX_RELEASE=open-release/ficus.2
$ vagrant provision Upgrading a Native Installation#

If you installed Open edX using the Legacy Open edX Native Installation, you can upgrade from one Ficus release to another by re-running those steps using your desired Ficus tag as the new value for OPENEDX_RELEASE.
