So, you’ve seen the announcement, read about all the improvements and even visited our blog – what’s next?
It’s time to upgrade to Iguana 4.0!
Upgrading to Iguana 4.0 is easier than ever. For most, upgrading is simply a matter of downloading Iguana – and running our installer. The installer will not only upgrade both Iguana and Chameleon, but it will also automatically backup and convert your existing Iguana configuration files to our new consolidated format.
If you’d like to know more about the standard upgrade process, you can read more in our manual.
Along with our standard install, we’ve also put together a set of tools and documentation with our recommendations of upgrading with the minimal amount of downtime and version control in mind.
With Iguana 4.0 and Chameleon 5.1, it’s now possible to:
- Save or convert your VMD files to an XML format for easy version control storage,
- Store all of your configuration, VMD and log files in a single directory,
- Manage multiple configurations through these “working directories” and
- Install Iguana as a stand-alone or side-by-side service and manually move channels from one instance to another.

Speaking of version control, what system – if any – are you using to manage your files?
We’ve recently started talking with some of you on this subject and realized that there is a pretty wide range of solutions – or the lack there-of. We’d love to hear the hows and whys about your system setup and what it’s advantages and disadvantages are.
In the meantime, ‘good luck’ with your upgrade and have fun trying out the new great features of Iguana 4.0!
