Migrating from Alpha 2 -> 3June 14, 2020 at 2:24am
Alpha 3 offers some really clean features and a high-quality user experience with its updated CLI interface. Is there a clean path to migrating database dumps (or something similar) from an Alpha1 or Alpha2 instance to Alpha3?

Thank you for verifying this, but now this raises some additional questions. Earlier today, I ran the dump -> restore process whereby I mounted the database dump-file ("dumpMigration.edb") onto a Docker's shared data volume directory, but got an interesting error resembling
EdgeQLSyntaxErrorwhich complained about a bad semi-colon, but it didn't specify where the ' ; ' vagabond was hiding (i.e. column or line). Any suggestions?

There's indeed an error, although not a syntax one. The problem is that a2 had a bug that caused it to produce dump DDLs with misordered CREATE/ALTER DUMP.
will take a look if he can backport the fix to a2 and issue a bug fix release so that you could make a new dump.
I also have an idea on how to help us better detect this kind of bugs: https://github.com/edgedb/edgedb/issues/1489
