Upgrade Planning

There are no special precautions to be aware of when upgrading from v1.5.6. You can expect the installation and startup of v1.5.8 to be complete in under a minute.

If you’re upgrading from a release older than v1.5.6, be sure to consider the “Upgrade Planning” notes from those other releases, as well.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to download and try RStudio Connect we encourage you to do so. RStudio Connect is the best way to share all the work that you do in R (Shiny apps, R Markdown documents, plots, dashboards, Plumber APIs, etc.) with collaborators, colleagues, or customers.
