Notes for Upgrading

To upgrade your Skyve project to this version, change the Skyve version in your pom.xml to 20190114 and change your skyve-maven-plugin version to 1.13.

This release deleted some actions that were no longer required from the admin module, so delete your local admin module before running mvn skyve:assemble (make sure you have committed your project to source control first). After upgrade, you should have a src/main/webapp/admin directory, if you don’t you will need to copy that directory from skyve-ee/ as well.

See the complete upgrade instructions on GitHub.
