# pulpcore 3.0.1 is Generally Available
Pulpcore 3.0.1 is the first bugfix release, and contains some significant fixes. See the release notes for all the details. https://docs.pulpproject.org/en/3.0.1/changes.html
Pulpcore 3.0.1 contains only bugfixes and no breaking changes for either users or plugin developers. This means all existing released plugins should be able to upgrade onto pulpcore==3.0.1 without issue.
## New Installations
If you are using a new install, you can use the ansible-installer directly and you'll receive 3.0.1. The quick start guides below are useful for that.
* pulp_rpm installation -- https://pulp-rpm.readthedocs.io/en/3.0/installation.html
* pulp_container installation -- https://pulp-container.readthedocs.io/en/1.0/installation.html
* pulp_file installation -- https://pulp-file.readthedocs.io/en/0.1.0/installation.html
## Updating from 3.0.0
For safety reasons, if you rerun the installer exactly as you did before you won't be updated. There are a various scenarios a user may want to rerun the installer, e.g. settings changes, fixing drift, etc, and you wouldn't want to unexpectedly update.
Two new boolean variables are added to the installer, `upgrade` (under `pulp_install_plugins`) and `pulp_upgrade`. The former will update the plugin it is specified under; the latter will update pulpcore itself.
To update you should:
1. Download the latest installer from https://github.com/pulp/ansible-pulp
2. Set the `pulp_upgrade` variable to `True`
3. Run the installer
Note: Later on, additional variables will be added to differentiate updates vs upgrades.
Pulp_rpm offers a quickstart guide (link below) which uses pulplift (link below) to create a not-long-living installation just to try it out. These same instructions can be adapted to the other plugins also.
## Migrating from Pulp2 -> Pulp3
A Pulp 2 -> Pulp 3 migration tool is in-progress ( https://github.com/pulp/pulp-2to3-migration ), but not fully available yet. Until it is, users are recommended to **not** install Pulp3 on top of their Pulp2 system until it is available.
This tool is progressing well. We hope this tool will be available within a month or two to migrate the plugin types that are released.
