If you already have the plugin installed, the conversion process in the upgrade essentially does nothing. You can upgrade from any version into the newer version and don't have to stop at any versions along the way ( like it you have v1.0 you can upgrade right to v1.5 without installing v1.4.2 ).

Just keep the container_management plugin in your config.rb, run the setup-database.sh|.bat script, start the application, let it reindex, then stop the app and remove the container_management from your config.rb setting.

Greetings, and good news re: testing. I'm especially glad to see that the one institution that was already running the plugin did well. This is the basis for my question: have there been any improvements to the conversion process as part of 1.5 versus the original plugin? The underlying question here is whether we should migrate into 1.4.2 with the container plugin, or wait for the conversion process from 1.5. Is there any difference?

Thank you very much to the organizations that have tested the release candidate for the upcoming version of 1.5.0.  The results so far are modestly positive.  Three of the four organizations that tested the release candidate were able to complete the update / conversion process.  Of those three, two organizations were able to find and interpret the error report for converted containers.  As to the third organization, it had already completed the conversion process using the container management plugin; the conversion process in the release candidate successfully recognized this and, as intended, did not try to update that organization's data.

While these results are promising, we still need many more organizations to complete the testing before we feel confident about distributing version 1.5.0.  To encourage additional input, we are extending testing of the release candidate until Monday, May 16.  Per the announcement below, information about the new container data model and its functionality included in the 1.5.0 release candidate is located here<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_archivesspace_archivesspace_blob_master_README-5FFEATURES-5F1.5.0.md&d=CwMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=4JGa5VtTknXYK4u1_QXigeqoIeLZKZx44Vc_775eJ9Q&m=-swa07t9FQwsWbgpKxSPvnxwFOUOM7WKvEyPyy3J-_M&s=AMwKs7745JMoFlrYasBDMdj8JhwyQCZfVlseB1vEs_w&e=>,  while guidelines for converting to the new container data model are located here<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_archivesspace_archivesspace_blob_master_UPGRADING-5F1.5.0.md&d=CwMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=4JGa5VtTknXYK4u1_QXigeqoIeLZKZx44Vc_775eJ9Q&m=-swa07t9FQwsWbgpKxSPvnxwFOUOM7WKvEyPyy3J-_M&s=vTXy6CkK-v_vXna0zHWivXZb3EaVlI0P8ibkEYQuGWU&e=>.
