When new versions of OpenShift are released, you can upgrade your existing cluster to apply the latest enhancements and bug fixes. For OpenShift Origin, see the Releases page on GitHub to review the latest changes.

Unless noted otherwise, node and masters within a major version are forward and backward compatible, so upgrading your cluster should go smoothly. However, you should not run mismatched versions longer than necessary to upgrade the entire cluster.

Starting with Origin 1.0.6, if you installed using the advanced installation and the inventory file that was used is available, you can perform an automated upgrade. Alternatively, you can upgrade OpenShift manually.
