Another micro-release tonight includes:

  • Adding of an admin user automatically

An update has been issued to yesterday's 0.5 release to fix the frontend code not being included in the static web server content and a push has been made to Docker.

This means if you start now - or sync from Docker (even if you still have 0.5 in your repository) everything will work again.

Additional changes in 0.5.1:

  • Splitting out of Docker dev and prod values
  • Extra code static analysis
  • Disabling of no-longer-used code (Nodes should be back nearer the next release).

Have fun!
