Well, we really blew the “last of the old EllisLab releases,” aka the April 7th ExpressionEngine 2 release (2.1.3 and 2.1.4 Beta 20110406 builds). As the Product Owner of ExpressionEngine and on behalf of our entire team, I’m sorry this got into the wild and is causing problems for you. Its a great example of why we’ve changed our entire release process.
Here is what happened: There was an issue in the build script that caused the actual release to differ from the internal build.
Here’s what we’re doing to fix it and what you need to do to keep your site stable right now:
1. Current EE2 downloads in the store have been rolled back and are stable builds. If you need a copy of EE, the ones available are good (the prior release).
2. We’re manually rebuilding the EE2 release and giving it a test run this afternoon. If all goes well, we’ll have the new builds released tomorrow or earlier. We’ll update here if they are not ready for some reason.
We will update the blog as soon as the problem has been resolved along with sending the info out on Twitter.
