Alright, so I have installed 0.7.43, but there are already things that I miss from the master branch (namely LDAP authentication). How do I upgrade Askbot, in this case to the master branch?

In general, where is the upgrade documentation? I have found the install guide to be fairly complete, but it doesn't really explicitly state how to upgrade the site. Maybe I missed something...

Take a look here also there are several threads tagged "upgrade". There is not section on upgrades in the documentation yet.

That's a good answer - but I guess the real answer will come when there's such a section in the official documentation. I had search for this question through the search engine and somehow didn't find that question, sorry for the dupe.

No problems - if you have additional questions - post them as comments on that answer, I'll improve it. Eventually we'll move the text to the documentation area.

I have two more questions which I am hesitant in posting as new questions: 1. why didn't i find that post in the first place? 2. when is the next release? (searching for that question yields around 1000 matches... ;)

On this site we are using MySQL where full text search is really poor. I agree that we need to improve search. I think we will make a new release in a day or two with another one to follow soon (with Django 1.4 support).
