0.16.3 is out. I know, we jumped straight from the 0.16.1 to this one, the fact is that the 0.16.2 introduced a critical bug, so let assume it did not exist.

By upgrading, you'll fix:

- A CLI importer error on higher version of Python 3
- A front-end issue where the user was asked to chose an instance when visiting for the first time

Changelog is available here, as well as the upgrade instructions:

Thank you for your patience, happy upgrade!

There is a bug in the just released 0.16.2 version, please don't upgrade, a 0.16.3 is coming right up.

0.16.1 is out. As you may guess, it's a minor , focusing more on bugfixes and stability than on new features.

However, this one still introduce a cool new thing: theming! That's right, instance owners can now use the full power of CSS to customize their instances. If you're interested, have a look at the documentation:

@tofeo il y a un forum pour demander si c'est normal avant de crier au loup ! Les solutions possédant un bouton unique pour faire tout ce que l'utilisateur souhaite n'existe pas. Car il y a un fossé entre ce qui est proposé, ce que l'utilisateur veut et ce que l'utilisateur pense avoir.
Ne désespère pas et met toi en relation avec les personnes du projet.
#YunoHost c'est aussi une communauté, elle fait partie du "produit" ! Et elle est d'un grand secours. Tu n'es pas seul !
