About the update:
From this release, ASYD uses the Semantic Versioning scheme (major.minor.patch), thus we are releasing the first major release (v1.0.0). This release is not necessarily backwards-compatible, the updater should work but in case something fails please backup your data/ directory and restore it to a new ASYD installation.


  • FreeBSD client support
  • MacOS client support


  • Now you can add hosts by fully qualified domain name and not only by IP.
  • Both config file and config dir commands behave on a more natural way.
    • This commands now detect the necessity of sudo and acts accordingly. It's not needed to move over the file on the def.sudo files anymore.
    • Better understanding of the provided route and recursive creation of directories to reach destination path.
  • Add line numbers on the deploy editor for readability sake.
  • Automatically detects red hat firewall and opens the monit port if needed.
  • Better reporting on connectivity issues.


  • Redone the way ASYD connects to the hosts by SSH. Now a persistent connection is created through the entire deploy to avoid unnecessary connections and the associated flood on the auth.log file, plus overall improvements on the networking side.


  • The reboot button on the web interface was not working.
  • There was an issue when editing hosts.
  • The UI was slow when trying to view the details of an unreachable host.
  • Several other minor bugfixes

In the event you find any issues after updating to this release, please report to our bugtracker, or contact us on info at asyd-solutions dot com.

Improve config file command
+ Now ASYD uses sudo to upload a file if the user is not root (no need to mv over the file)
+ Better undestranding of the destination path (upload file to /path/ or /path/filename)
+ Recursive creation of directories if destination path does not exist (i.e. mkdir -p)
Improve config dir command
+ Analogous improvements as for the config file command
+ Use sudo to upload a directory if the user is not root (no need to mv over the directory)
+ Better error messages
Rewrite the way ASYD has to interact with the clients by SSH
Before it opened a new SSH connection for every command, now it opens a global SSH connection and stores
it on the host class while the deploy it's using it, thus avoiding connection spam. This should represent
a huge performance improvement on environments with heavy deploys, group of hosts and rate-limited networks.
Improve error handling
+ Identify connection issues and better report them
+ Some code refactoring for clarity sake
