# Upgrading from 2.0 to 2.1
## Distro-specific packages
Elixir releases are precompiled binaries and are therefore dependent on the host they've been compiled to be compatible with your system (architecture, libc version, …) ([read more](https://hexdocs.pm/mix/Mix.Tasks.Release.html#module-requirements)). For instance, the release build on Debian Bullseye (with libc 2.31) cannot be run on Debian Buster (which only provides libc 2.28). Another example is Red Hat-relative distributions (Fedora, CentOS, …) which have an OpenSSL library version that's not compatible with the version compiled (because of [potential patent issues with Elliptic curves](https://github.com/kerl/kerl#compiling-crypto-on-red-hat-systems)).
In order to make sure the releases package we redistribute , we now build distro-version-specific packages.
The list of packages built for version 2.1.0 with the amd64 (x86_64) architecture is the following:
- Debian Buster (10)
- Debian Bullseye (11)
- Ubuntu Bionic (18.04)
- Ubuntu Focal (20.04)
- Fedora 35
- Fedora 36
- Alpine 3.14.5
- Alpine 3.15.3
As building for non-`amd64` architectures is quite difficult (because of the time and extra resources cross-compiling takes), these architectures are only built against Debian Bullseye (11) at the moment.
We want to expand this list in the future to make sure it covers most uses, so feel free to give us feedback from what you need.
Note: Docker images are also built for `amd64`/`arm`/`arm64` architectures, and of course you can always install Mobilizon from source on pretty much any unix-compatible system.

## New optional dependencies
These are optional, installing them will allow Mobilizon to export to PDF and ODS as well. Mobilizon 2.0 allows to export the participant list, but more is planned.
### Docker
Everything is included in our Docker image.
### Release and source install
New optional Python dependencies:
* `Python` >= 3.6
* `weasyprint` for PDF export (with [a few extra dependencies](https://doc.courtbouillon.org/weasyprint/stable/first_steps.html))
* `pyexcel-ods3` for ODS export (no extra dependencies)

Both can be installed through pip. You need to enable and configure exports for PDF and ODS in the configuration afterwards. Read [the dedicated docs page about this](https://docs.joinmobilizon.org/administration/configure/exports/).

The 1.1 version of Mobilizon brings Elixir releases support. An Elixir release is a self-contained directory that contains all of Mobilizon's code (front-end and backend), it's dependencies, as well as the Erlang Virtual Machine and runtime (only the parts you need). As long as the release has been assembled on the same OS and architecture, it can be deploy and run straight away.

## Comparison
Migrating to releases means:
* You only get a precompiled binary, so you avoid compilation times when updating
* No need to have Elixir/NodeJS installed on the system
* Code/data/config location is more common (/opt, /var/lib, /etc)
* More efficient, as only what you need from the Elixir/Erlang standard libraries is included and all of the code is directly preloaded
* You can't hardcode modifications in Mobilizon's code

## Releases
If you want to migrate to releases, [we provide a full guide](https://docs.joinmobilizon.org/administration/upgrading/source_to_release/). You may do this at any time.
## Source install
To stay on a source release, you just need to check the following things:
* Rename your configuration file `config/prod.secret.exs` to `config/runtime.exs`.
* If your config file includes `server: true` under `Mobilizon.Web.Endpoint`, remove it.
```diff
config :mobilizon, Mobilizon.Web.Endpoint,
- server: true,
```
* The uploads default directory is now `/var/lib/mobilizon/uploads`. To keep it in the previous `uploads/` directory, just add the following line to `config/runtime.exs`:
- Rename your configuration file `config/prod.secret.exs` to `config/runtime.exs`.
- If your config file includes `server: true` under `Mobilizon.Web.Endpoint`, remove it.
```diff
config :mobilizon, Mobilizon.Web.Endpoint,

```
- The uploads default directory is now `/var/lib/mobilizon/uploads`. To keep it in the previous `uploads/` directory, just add the following line to `config/runtime.exs`:
```elixir
config :mobilizon, Mobilizon.Web.Upload.Uploader.Local, uploads: "uploads"
```
Or you may use any other directory where the `mobilizon` user has write permissions.
* The GeoIP database default directory is now `/var/lib/mobilizon/geo/GeoLite2-City.mmdb`. To keep it in the previous `priv/data/GeoLite2-City.mmdb` directory, just add the following line to `config/runtime.exs`:
