    Notes

    ๐Ÿš€ This is the first release of RethinkDB since October 2016. The RethinkDB project has joined the Linux Foundation. This release is brought to you by volunteers from the Open RethinkDB team. The RethinkDB source code is now licensed under an ASLv2 license.

    Compatibility

    ๐Ÿ On 32-bit platforms and on Windows (64 and 32 bit), RethinkDB 2.3.6 servers should not be mixed with servers running RethinkDB 2.3.3 or older in the same cluster. Doing so can lead to server crashes when using the web UI or when accessing the logs system table.

    โฌ†๏ธ On 64-bit platforms, RethinkDB 2.3.6 servers can be mixed with older RethinkDB 2.3.x servers in the same cluster. We recommend that you run a mixed-version cluster only temporarily for upgrading purposes.

    ๐Ÿš€ No migration is required when upgrading from RethinkDB 2.3.x. Please read the [RethinkDB 2.3.0 release notes][release-notes-2.3.0] if you're upgrading from an older version.
