The new version is available for download at
. New CentOS packages and Docker containers have also been generated,
please see https://github.com/gbif/ipt#latest-release-242 .
Please read the release notes, particularly if you are not upgrading

different place, as well as any custom configuration (e.g. Apache
configuration, or custom styling applied to the IPT).
