New node version available: get the latest version with added features from the nodes panel

Hello - I am self hosting N8N and currently running v1.8.2

While in an existing workflow, if I open the MySQL Insert node, I see this:

New node version available: get the latest version with added features from the nodes panel.

Since I am running the latest version of N8N, how do I actually update the node to the newest version? I think I know what the nodes panel is (the plus button while on a workflow) but I don’t see an update node option?

Thank you!

Hi @n8n_rookie :wave:

While that notice is letting you know that there’s a newer node available than the one you’re using in the workflow (so you’d delete the node and then re-add it through the menu), you really don’t need to update :slight_smile: Depending on how old your workflow is / what version it’s from, there may be a significant difference in the nodes that you might not expect :see_no_evil:

Thank you! That worked incredibly well! Not sure why it didn’t seem intuitive but makes sense the way you explained it. I wish there was a 1 click update and an easy way to see what is new if I do the update…

Totally understand where you’re coming from with that one, @n8n_rookie - I’ve let our product team know that feedback :slight_smile:
