This page maintains a list of all of the updates for version 2.2 of Aspire.

6/22/2015: New version 2.2 has been released and is available for Community, Enterprise and Aspire for Elasticsearch

--- Notice ---

As a known bug for Aspire 2.1, the Aspire 2.2 release will cause 2.1 distributions to start loading components and app bundles from the 2.2 release (once restarted), this will probably cause issues because of new properties added to 2.2 components not configured by 2.1 distributions. Link to workarounds
