#2653 closed defect (worksforme)

xpra upgrade :0 looks like a bad idea

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: stdedos
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.0
Component: server Version: 3.0.x

Description

I updated /etc/xpra/conf.d/80_lock.conf configuration file, and I was thinking how could I quickly update the server without stop/shadow.

Without much thinking I did xpra upgrade :0.

Now theming is different, fonts are different and applications have duplicated "File" menus (one in the normal Unity toolbar, one just when their drawing area starts).

Maybe I shouldn't be able to do that? Or you do it internally like a stop/shadow instead?

Correct, that's a bug, fixed in r25673. (backport in r25674)

For upgrading shadow servers, you are meant to stop it and start a new one, shadow servers aren't meant to linger around, they are usually started with --exit-with-client=yes.

Ideally, we would have an upgrade-shadow subcommand (same as upgrade-desktop), or even better: a generic upgrade command which would figure out what it is upgrading automatically. (but it's not as easy as it sounds)

This caused a regression, details in r25677.

There are no new xpra builds to test against.

I understand you are going in release and you are cleaning up the tracker, but at least for some tickets there could be some grace period

There are no new xpra builds to test against.

There are Xenial and win32 builds fresh from today.

Replying to Antoine Martin:

There are Xenial and win32 builds fresh from today.

I trust you, and I've seen the changeset, but apt-get does not want to pick them up for some reason (apt-cache madison also agrees)

Somehow you broke the xpra repo...
Edit: moved to #2663.
