This second release candidate of the 1.3.9 release fixes a regression and adds some resilience against possible environmental issues discovered during testing of the first RC:

  • #2715 (regression) - Fix broken estimator initialization on SD print start and resulting crash of the state update worker.
  • Add sanity check for disabled plugin list (see also #2687 (comment)).
  • Improve logging of exceptions triggered inside the state update worker (see also #2715).
  • Workaround for a potential pip issue when updating components through the Software Update plugin.

You can find the full changelog and release notes as usual on Github.

If you are tracking the “Maintenance RC” release channel, you should soon get an update notification just like you are used to from stable releases.

If you are not interested in helping to test release candidates, just ignore this post, 1.3.9 stable will hit your instance via the usual way once reports indicate that it’s ready 😊

Please provide feedback on this RC. For general feedback you can use this ticket on the tracker. The information that everything works fine for you is also valuable feedback 😄 For bug reports please follow “How to file a bug report”.

Depending on how the feedback for this release candidate turns out, I’ll either look into releasing 1.3.9 or fix any observed regressions and push out a new release candidate ASAP.
