1.8.3 (June 10, 2016)

BREAKING CHANGES:

  • The winrm communicator now shares the same upload behavior as the ssh communicator. This change should have no impact to most vagrant operations but may break behavior when uploading directories to an existing destination target. The file provisioner should be the only builtin provisioner affected by this change. When uploading a directory and the destination directory exists on the endpoint, the source base directory will be created below the destination directory on the endpoint and the source directory contents will be unzipped to that location. Prior to this release, the contents of the source directory would be unzipped to an existing destination directory without creating the source base directory. This new behavior is more consistent with SCP and other well known shell copy commands.
  • The Chef provisioner's channel default value has changed from "current" to "stable". The "current" channel includes nightly releases and should be opt-in only. Note that users wishing to download the Chef Development Kit will need to opt into the "current" channel until Chef Software promotes into the "stable" channel.
  • The Arch Linux host capability for NFS removed support for rc.d in favor or systemd which has been present since 2012. Please see GH-7181 for more information.

FEATURES:

  • provider/docker: Allow non-linux users to opt-out of the host VM to run Docker containers by setting config.force_host_vm = false in the Vagrantfile. This is especially useful for customers who wish to use the beta builds for Mac and Windows, dlite, or a custom provider. [GH-7277, GH-7298, 8c11b53]
  • provider/docker: New command: docker-exec allows attaching to an already-running container. [GH-7377, GH-6566, GH-5193, GH-4904, GH-4057, GH-4179, GH-4903]

BREAKING CHANGES:

  • The ansible provisioner now can override the effective ansible remote user (i.e. ansible_ssh_user setting) to always correspond to the vagrant ssh username. This change is enabled by default, but we expect this to affect only a tiny number of people as it corresponds to the common usage. If you however use multiple remote usernames in your Ansible plays, tasks, or custom inventories, you can simply set the option force_remote_user to false to make Vagrant behave the same as before.

1.7.2 (January 6, 2015)

BREAKING CHANGES:

  • If you depended on the paths that Chef/Puppet provisioners use to store cookbooks (ex. "/tmp/vagrant-chef-1"), these will no longer be correct. Without this change, Chef/Puppet didn't work at all with vagrant provision. We expect this to affect only a minor number of people, since it's not something that was ever documented or recommended by Vagrant, or even meant to be supported.

FEATURES:

  • provisioners/salt: add support for grains [GH-4895]

1.6.0 (May 6, 2014)

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • Deprecated: halt_timeout and halt_check_interval settings for SmartOS, Solaris, and Solaris11 guests. These will be fully removed in 1.7. A warning will be shown if they're in use in 1.6.

FEATURES:

  • New guest: Windows. Vagrant now fully supports Windows as a guest VM. WinRM can be used for communication (or SSH), and the shell provisioner, Chef, and Puppet all work with Windows VMs.
  • New command: global-status. This command shows the state of every created Vagrant environment on the system for that logged in user.
  • New command: rdp. This command connects to the running machine via the Remote Desktop Protocol.
  • New command: version. This outputs the currently installed version as well as the latest version of Vagrant available.
  • New provider: Docker. This provider will back your development environments with Docker containers. If you're not on Linux, it will automatically spin up a VM for you on any provider. You can even specify a specific Vagrantfile to use as the Docker container host.
  • Control Vagrant environments from any directory. Using the UUIDs given in vagrant global-status, you can issue commands from anywhere on your machine, not just that environment's directory. Example: vagrant destroy UUID from anywhere.
  • Can now specify a post_up_message in your Vagrantfile that is shown after a vagrant up. This is useful for putting some instructions of how to use the development environment.
  • Can configure provisioners to run "once" or "always" (defaults to "once"), so that subsequent vagrant up or reload calls will always run a provisioner. [GH-2421]
  • Multi-machine environments can specify an "autostart" option (default to true). vagrant up starts all machines that have enabled autostart.
  • Vagrant is smarter about choosing a default provider. If VAGRANT_DEFAULT_PROVIDER is set, it still takes priority, but otherwise Vagrant chooses a "best" provider.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • core: Vagrant locks machine access to one Vagrant process at a time. This will protect against two simultaneous up actions happening on the same environment.
  • core: Boxes can be compressed with LZMA now as well.
  • commands/box/remove: Warns if the box appears to be in use by an environment. Can be forced with --force.
  • commands/destroy: Exit codes changes. 0 means everything succeeded. 1 means everything was declined. 2 means some were declined. [GH-811]
  • commands/destroy: Doesn't require box to exist anymore. [GH-1629]
  • commands/init: force flag. [GH-3564]
  • commands/init: flag for minimal Vagrantfile creation (no comments). [GH-3611]
  • commands/rsync-auto: Picks up and syncs provisioner folders if provisioners are backed by rsync.
  • commands/rsync-auto: Detects when new synced folders were added and warns user they won't be synced until vagrant reload.

  • guests/freebsd: Support for virtio interfaces. [GH-3082]
  • guests/openbsd: Support for virtio interfaces. [GH-3082]
  • guests/redhat: Networking works for upcoming RHEL7 release. [GH-3643]
  • providers/hyperv: Implement vagrant ssh -c support. [GH-3615]
  • provisioners/ansible: Support for Ansible Vault. [GH-3338]
  • provisioners/ansible: Show Ansible command executed. [GH-3628]
  • provisioners/salt: Colorize option. [GH-3603]

  • commands/rsync-auto: Interrupt exits properly. [GH-3552]
  • commands/rsync-auto: Run properly on Windows. [GH-3547]
  • communicators/ssh: Detect if config.ssh.shell is invalid. [GH-3040]
  • guests/debian: Can set hostname if hosts doesn't contain an entry already for 127.0.1.1 [GH-3271]
  • guests/linux: For read_ip_address capability, set LANG=en so it works on international systems. [GH-3029]
  • providers/virtualbox: VirtalBox detection works properly again on Windows when the VBOX_INSTALL_PATH has multiple elements. [GH-3549]
  • providers/virtualbox: Forcing MAC address on private network works properly again. [GH-3588]
  • provisioners/chef-solo: Fix Chef version checking to work with prerelease versions. [GH-3604]

  • provisioners/salt: Install args should always be present with bootstrap.
  • provisioners/salt: Overwrite keys properly on subsequent provisions [GH-3575]
  • provisioners/salt: Bootstrap uses raw GitHub URL rather than subdomain. [GH-3583]
  • synced_folders/nfs: Acquires a process-level lock so exports don't collide with Vagrant running in parallel.
  • synced_folders/nfs: Implement usability check so that hosts that don't support NFS get an error earlier. [GH-3625]
  • synced_folders/rsync: Add UserKnownHostsFile option to not complain. [GH-3511]
  • synced_folders/rsync: Proxy command is used properly if set. [GH-3553]
  • synced_folders/rsync: Owner/group settings are respected. [GH-3544]
  • synced_folders/smb: Passwords with symbols work. [GH-3642]

PLUGIN AUTHOR CHANGES:

  • New host capability: "rdp_client". This capability gets the RDP connection info and must launch the RDP client on the system.
  • core: The "Call" middleware now merges the resulting middleware stack into the current stack, rather than running it as a separate stack. The result is that ordering is preserved.
  • core: The "Message" middleware now takes a "post" option that will output the message on the return-side of the middleware stack.
  • core: Forwarded port collision repair works when Vagrant is run in parallel with other Vagrant processes. [GH-2966]
  • provider: Providers can now specify that boxes are optional. This lets you use the provider without a config.vm.box. Useful for providers like AWS or Docker.
  • provider: A new class-level usable? method can be implemented on the provider implementation. This returns or raises an error when the provider is not usable (i.e. VirtualBox isn't installed for VirtualBox)
  • synced_folders: New "disable" method for removing synced folders from a running machine.

1.5.0 (March 10, 2014)

BREAKING CHANGES:

  • provisioners/ansible: the machine name (taken from Vagrantfile) is now set as default limit to ensure that vagrant provision steps only affect the expected machine.

DEPRECATIONS:

  • provisioners/chef-solo: The "nfs" setting has been replaced by synced_folder_type. The "nfs" setting will be removed in the next version.
  • provisioners/puppet: The "nfs" setting has been replaced by synced_folder_type. The "nfs" setting will be removed in the next version.

FEATURES:

  • New provider: Hyper-V. If you're on a Windows machine with Hyper-V enabled, Vagrant can now manage Hyper-V virtual machines out of the box.
  • New guest: Funtoo (change host name and networks supported)
  • New guest: NetBSD
  • New guest: TinyCore Linux. This allows features such as networking, halting, rsync and more work with Boot2Docker.
  • New synced folder type: rsync - Does a one-time one-directional sync to the guest machine. New commands vagrant rsync and vagrant rsync-auto can resync the folders.
  • New synced folder type: SMB- Allows bi-directional folder syncing using SMB on Windows hosts with any guest.
  • Password-based SSH authentication. This lets you use almost any off-the-shelf virtual machine image with Vagrant. Additionally, Vagrant will automatically insert a keypair into the machine.
  • Plugin versions can now be constrained to a range of versions. Example: vagrant plugin install foo --plugin-version "> 1.0, < 1.1"
  • Host-specific operations now use a "host capabilities" system much like guests have used "guest capabilities" for a few releases now. This allows plugin developers to create pluggable host-specific capabilities and makes further integrating Vagrant with new operating systems even easier.
  • You can now override provisioners within sub-VM configuration and provider overrides. See documentation for more info. [GH-1113]
  • providers/virtualbox: Provider-specific configuration cpus can be used to set the number of CPUs on the VM [GH-2800]

  • core: Plugin installation does not fail if your local gemrc file has syntax errors.
  • core: Plugins that fork within certain actions will no longer hang indefinitely. [GH-2756]
  • core: Windows checks home directory permissions more correctly to warn of potential issues.
  • core: Synced folders set to the default synced folder explicitly won't be deleted. [GH-2873]

  • With forward agent enabled and sudo being used, Vagrant will automatically discover and set SSH_AUTH_SOCK remotely so that forward agent works properly despite misconfigured sudoers. [GH-1307]
  • Synced folder paths on Windows containing '\' are replaced with '/' internally so that they work properly.
  • Unused config objects are finalized properly. [GH-1877]
  • Private networks work with Fedora guests once again. [GH-1738]
  • Default internal encoding of strings in Vagrant is now UTF-8, allowing detection of Fedora to work again (which contained a UTF-8 string). [GH-1977]

1.2.4 (July 16, 2013)

FEATURES:

  • Chef solo and client provisioning now support a custom_config_path setting that accepts a path to a Ruby file to load as part of Chef configuration, allowing you to override any setting available. [GH-876]
  • CFEngine provisioner: you can now specify the package name to install, so CFEngine enterprise is supported. [GH-1920]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • vagrant box remove works with only the name of the box if that box exists only backed by one provider. [GH-1032]
  • vagrant destroy returns exit status 1 if any of the confirmations are declined. [GH-923]
  • Forwarded ports can specify a host IP and guest IP to bind to. [GH-1121]
  • You can now set the "ip" of a private network that uses DHCP. This will change the subnet and such that the DHCP server uses.
  • Add file_cache_path support for chef_solo. [GH-1897]

BUG FIXES:

  • VBoxManage or any other executable missing from PATH properly reported. Regression from 1.2.2. [GH-1928]
  • Boxes downloaded as part of vagrant up are now done so prior to config validation. This allows Vagrantfiles to references files that may be in the box itself. [GH-1061]
  • Chef removes dna.json and encrypted data bag secret file prior to uploading. [GH-1111]
  • NFS synced folders exporting sub-directories of other exported folders now works properly. [GH-785]
  • NFS shared folders properly dereference symlinks so that the real path is used, avoiding mount errors [GH-1101]
  • SSH channel is closed after the exit status is received, potentially eliminating any SSH hangs. [GH-603]
  • Fix regression where VirtualBox detection wasn't working anymore. [GH-1918]
  • NFS shared folders with single quotes in their name now work properly. [GH-1166]
  • Debian/Ubuntu request DHCP renewal when hostname changes, which will fix issues with FQDN detecting. [GH-1929]
  • SSH adds the "DSAAuthentication=yes" option in case that is disabled on the user's system. [GH-1900]

1.2.3 (July 9, 2013)

FEATURES:

  • Puppet provisioner now supports Hiera by specifying a hiera_config_path.
  • Added a working_directory configuration option to the Puppet apply provisioner so you can specify the working directory when puppet is called, making it friendly to Hiera data and such. [GH-1670]
  • Ability to specify the host IP to bind forwarded ports to. [GH-1785]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Setting hostnames works properly on OmniOS. [GH-1672]
  • Better VBoxManage error detection on Windows systems. This avoids some major issues where Vagrant would sometimes "lose" your VM. [GH-1669]
  • Better detection of missing VirtualBox kernel drivers on Linux systems. [GH-1671]
  • More precise detection of Ubuntu/Debian guests so that running Vagrant within an LXC container works properly now.
  • Allow strings in addition to symbols to more places in V1 configuration as well as V2 configuration.
  • Add ARPCHECK=0 to RedHat OS family network configuration. [GH-1815]
  • Add SSH agent forwarding sample to initial Vagrantfile. [GH-1808]
  • VirtualBox: Only configure networks if there are any to configure. This allows linux's that don't implement this capability to work with Vagrant. [GH-1796]
  • Default SSH forwarded port now binds to 127.0.0.1 so only local connections are allowed. [GH-1785]
  • Use netctl for Arch Linux network configuration. [GH-1760]
  • Improve fedora host detection regular expression. [GH-1913]
  • SSH shows a proper error on EHOSTUNREACH. [GH-1911]

BUG FIXES:

  • Ignore "guest not ready" errors when attempting to graceful halt and carry on checks whether the halt succeeded. [GH-1679]
  • Handle the case where a roles path for Chef solo isn't properly defined. [GH-1665]
  • Finding V1 boxes now works properly again to avoid "box not found" errors. [GH-1691]
  • Setting hostname on SLES 11 works again. [GH-1781]
  • config.vm.guest properly forces guests again. [GH-1800]
  • The read_ip_address capability for linux properly reads the IP of only the first network interface. [GH-1799]
  • Validate that an IP is given for a private network. [GH-1788]
  • Fix uninitialized constant error for Gentoo plugin. [GH-1698]

1.2.2 (April 23, 2013)

FEATURES:

  • New DestroyConfirm built-in middleware for providers so they can more easily conform to the destroy action.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • No longer an error if the Chef run list is empty. It is now a warning. [GH-1620]
  • Better locking around handling the box_url parameter for parallel providers.
  • Solaris guest is now properly detected on SmartOS, OmniOS, etc. [GH-1639]
  • Guest addition version detection is more robust, attempting other routes to get the version, and also retrying a few times. [GH-1575]

BUG FIXES:

  • vagrant package --base works again. [GH-1615]
  • Box overrides specified in provider config overrides no longer fail to detect the box. [GH-1617]
  • In a multi-machine environment, a box not found won't be downloaded multiple times. [GH-1467]
  • vagrant box add with a file path now works correctly on Windows when a drive letter is specified.
  • DOS line endings are converted to Unix line endings for the shell provisioner automatically. [GH-1495]

1.2.1 (April 17, 2013)

FEATURES:

  • Add a --[no-]parallel flag to vagrant up to enable/disable parallelism. Vagrant will parallelize by default.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Get rid of arbitrary 4 second sleep when connecting via SSH. The issue it was attempting to work around may be gone now.

BUG FIXES:

  • Chef solo run list properly set. [GH-1608]
  • Follow 30x redirects when downloading boxes. [GH-1607]
  • Chef client config defaults are done properly. [GH-1609]
  • VirtualBox mounts shared folders with the proper owner/group. [GH-1611]
  • Use the Mozilla CA cert bundle for cURL so SSL validation works properly.

1.2.0 (April 16, 2013)

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • WINDOWS USERS: Vagrant now defaults to using the 'USERPROFILE' environmental variable for the home directory if it is set. This means that the default location for the Vagrant home directory is now %USERPROFILE%/.vagrant.d. On Cygwin, this will cause existing Cygwin users to "lose" their boxes. To work around this, either set VAGRANT_HOME to your Cygwin ".vagrant.d" folder or move your ".vagrant.d" folder to USERPROFILE. The latter is recommended for long-term support.
  • The constant Vagrant::Environment::VAGRANT_HOME was removed in favor of Vagrant::Environment#default_vagrant_home.

FEATURES:

  • Providers can now parallelize! If they explicitly support it, Vagrant will run "up" and other commands in parallel. For providers such AWS, this means that your instances will come up in parallel. VirtualBox does not support this mode.
  • Box downloads are now done via curl rather than Ruby's built-in HTTP library. This results in massive speedups, support for SSL verification, FTP downloads, and more.
  • config.vm.provider now takes an optional second parameter to the block, allowing you to override any configuration value. These overrides are applied last, and therefore override any other configuration value. Note that while this feature is available, the "Vagrant way" is instead to use box manifests to ensure that the "box" for every provider matches, so these sorts of overrides are unnecessary.
  • A new "guest capabilities" system to replace the old "guest" system. This new abstraction allows plugins to define "capabilities" that certain guest operating systems can implement. This allows greater flexibility in doing guest-specific behavior.
  • Ansible provisioner support. [GH-1465]
  • Providers can now support multiple box formats by specifying the box_format: option.
  • CFEngine provisioner support.
  • config.ssh.default settings introduced to set SSH defaults that providers can still override. [GH-1479]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Full Windows support in cmd.exe, PowerShell, Cygwin, and MingW based environments.
  • By adding the "disabled" boolean flag to synced folders you can disable them altogether. [GH-1004]
  • Specify the default provider with the VAGRANT_DEFAULT_PROVIDER environmental variable. [GH-1478]
  • Invalid settings are now caught and shown in a user-friendly way. [GH-1484]
  • Detect PuTTY Link SSH client on Windows and show an error. [GH-1518]
  • vagrant ssh in Cygwin won't output DOS path file warnings.
  • Add --rtcuseutc on as a sane default for VirtualBox. [GH-912]
  • SSH will send keep-alive packets every 5 seconds by default to keep connections alive. Can be disabled with config.ssh.keep_alive. [GH-516]
  • Show a message on vagrant up if the machine is already running. [GH-1558]
  • "Running provisioner" output now shoes the provisioner shortcut name, rather than the less-than-helpful class name.
  • Shared folders with the same guest path will overwrite each other. No more shared folder IDs.
  • Shell provisioner outputs script it is running. [GH-1568]
  • Automatically merge forwarded ports that share the same host port.

BUG FIXES:

  • The :mac option for host-only networks is respected. [GH-1536]
  • Don't preserve modified time when untarring boxes. [GH-1539]
  • Forwarded port auto-correct will not auto-correct to a port that is also in use.
  • Cygwin will always output color by default. Specify --no-color to override this.
  • Assume Cygwin has a TTY for asking for input. [GH-1430]
  • Expand Cygwin paths to Windows paths for calls to VBoxManage and for VirtualBox shared folders.
  • Output the proper clear line text for shells in Cygwin when reporting dynamic progress.
  • When using Builder instances for hooks, the builders will be merged for the proper before/after chain. [GH-1555]
  • Use the Vagrant temporary directory again for temporary files since they can be quite large and were messing with tmpfs. [GH-1442]
  • Fix issue parsing extra SSH args in vagrant ssh in multi-machine environments. [GH-1545]
  • Networks come back up properly on RedHat systems after reboot. [GH-921]
  • config.ssh settings override all detected SSH settings (regression). [GH-1479]
  • ssh-config won't raise an exception if the VirtualBox machine is not created. [GH-1562]
  • Multiple machines defined in the same Vagrantfile with the same name will properly merge.
  • More robust hostname checking for RedHat. [GH-1566]
  • Cookbook path existence for Chef is no longer an error, so that things like librarian and berkshelf plugins work properly. [GH-1570]
  • Chef solo provisioner uses proper SSH username instead of hardcoded config. [GH-1576]
  • Shell provisioner takes ownership of uploaded files properly so that they can also be manually executed later. [GH-1576]

1.1.6 (April 3, 2013)

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix SSH re-use connection logic to drop connection if an error occurs.

1.1.5 (April 2, 2013)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • More robust SSH connection close detection.
  • Don't load vagrant plugin installed plugins when in a Bundler environment. This happens during plugin development. This will make Vagrant errors much quieter when developing plugins.
  • Vagrant will detect Bundler environments, make assumptions that you're developing plugins, and will quiet its error output a bit.
  • More comprehensive synced folder configuration validation.
  • VBoxManage errors now show the output from the command so that users can potentially know what is wrong.

BUG FIXES:

  • Proper error message if invalid provisioner is used. [GH-1515]
  • Don't error on graceful halt if machine just shut down very quickly. [GH-1505]
  • Error message if private key for SSH isn't owned by the proper user. [GH-1503]
  • Don't error too early when config.vm.box is not properly set.
  • Show a human-friendly error if VBoxManage is not found (exit status 126). [GH-934]
  • Action hook prepend/append will only prepend or append once.
  • Retry SSH on Errno::EACCES.
  • Show an error if an invalid network type is used.
  • Don't share Chef solo folder if it doesn't exist on host.

1.1.4 (March 25, 2013)

BUG FIXES:

  • Default forwarded port adapter for VirtualBox should be 1.

1.1.3 (March 25, 2013)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Puppet apply provisioner now retains the default module path even while specifying custom module paths. [GH-1207]
  • Re-added DHCP support for host-only networks. [GH-1466]
  • Ability to specify a plugin version, plugin sources, and pre-release versions using --plugin-version, --plugin-source, and --plugin-prerelease. [GH-1461]
  • Move VirtualBox guest addition checks to after the machine boots. [GH-1179]
  • Removed Vagrant::TestHelpers because it doesn't really work anymore.
  • Add PLX linux guest support. [GH-1490]

BUG FIXES:

  • Attempt to re-establish SSH connection on Net::SSH::Disconnect
  • Allow any value that can convert to a string for Vagrant.plugin
  • Chef solo recipe_url works properly again. [GH-1467]

  • Fix obscure error when temp directory is world writable when adding boxes.
  • Improved error handling around network interface detection for VirtualBox [GH-1480]

1.1.2 (March 18, 2013)

BUG FIXES:

  • When not specifying a cookbooks_path for chef-solo, an error won't be shown if "cookbooks" folder is missing.
  • Fix typo for exception when no host-only network with NFS. [GH-1448]
  • Use UNSET_VALUE/nil with args on shell provisioner by default since [] was too truthy. [GH-1447]

1.1.1 (March 18, 2013)

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Don't load plugins on any vagrant plugin command, so that errors are avoided. [GH-1418]
  • An error will be shown if you forward a port to the same host port multiple times.
  • Automatically convert network, provider, and provisioner names to symbols internally in case people define them as strings.
  • Using newer versions of net-ssh and net-scp. [GH-1436]

BUG FIXES:

  • Quote keys to StringBlockEditor so keys with spaces, parens, and so on work properly.
  • When there is no route to host for SSH, re-establish a new connection.
  • vagrant package once again works, no more nil error. [GH-1423]
  • Human friendly error when "metadata.json" is missing in a box.
  • Don't use the full path to the manifest file with the Puppet provisioner because it exposes a bug with Puppet path lookup on VMware.
  • Fix bug in VirtualBox provider where port forwarding just didn't work if you attempted to forward to a port under 1024. [GH-1421]
  • Fix cross-device box adds for Windows. [GH-1424]
  • Fix minor issues with defaults of configuration of the shell provisioner.
  • Fix Puppet server using "host_name" instead of "hostname" [GH-1444]
  • Raise a proper error if no hostonly network is found for NFS with VirtualBox. [GH-1437]

1.1.0 (March 14, 2013)

BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITIES:

  • Vagrantfiles from 1.0.x that do not use any plugins are fully backwards compatible. If plugins are used, they must be removed prior to upgrading. The new plugin system in place will avoid this issue in the future.
  • Lots of changes introduced in the form of a new configuration version and format, but this is opt-in. Old Vagrantfile format continues to be supported, as promised. To use the new features that will be introduced throughout the 1.x series, you'll have to upgrade at some point.

FEATURES:

  • Groundwork for providers, alternate backends for Vagrant that allow Vagrant to power systems other than VirtualBox. Much improvement and change will come to this throughout the 1.x lifecycle. The API will continue to change, features will be added, and more. Specifically, a revamped system for handling shared folders gracefully across providers will be introduced in a future release.
  • New plugin system which adds much more structure and stability to the overall API. The goal of this system is to make it easier to write powerful plugins for Vagrant while providing a backwards-compatible API so that plugins will always load (though they will almost certainly not be functional in future versions of Vagrant).
  • Plugins are now installed and managed using the vagrant plugin interface.
  • Allow "file://" URLs for box URLs. [GH-1087]
  • Emit "vagrant-mount" upstart event when NFS shares are mounted. [GH-1118]
  • Add a VirtualBox provider config auto_nat_dns_proxy which when set to false will not attempt to automatically manage NAT DNS proxy settings with VirtualBox. [GH-1313]
  • vagrant provision accepts the --provision-with flag [GH-1167]
  • Set the name of VirtualBox machines with virtualbox.name in the VirtualBox provider config. [GH-1126]
  • vagrant ssh will execute an ssh binary on Windows if it is on your PATH. [GH-933]
  • The environmental variable VAGRANT_VAGRANTFILE can be used to specify an alternate Vagrantfile filename.

IMPROVEMENTS / BUG FIXES:

  • Vagrant works much better in Cygwin environments on Windows by properly resolving Cygwin paths. [GH-1366]
  • Improve the SSH "ready?" check by more gracefully handling timeouts. [GH-841]
  • Human friendly error if connection times out for HTTP downloads. [GH-849]
  • Detect when the VirtualBox installation is incomplete and error. [GH-846]
  • Detect when kernel modules for VirtualBox need to be installed on Gentoo systems and report a user-friendly error. [GH-710]
  • All vagrant commands that can take a target VM name can take one even if you're not in a multi-VM environment. [GH-894]
  • Hostname is set before networks are setup to avoid very slow sudo speeds on CentOS. [GH-922]
  • config.ssh.shell now includes the flags to pass to it, such as -l [GH-917]
  • The check for whether a port is open or not is more complete by catching ENETUNREACH errors. [GH-948]
  • SSH uses LogLevel FATAL so that errors are still shown.
  • Sending a SIGINT (Ctrl-C) very early on when executing vagrant no longer results in an ugly stack trace.
  • Chef JSON configuration output is now pretty-printed to be human readable. [GH-1146] that SSHing succeeds when booting a machine.
  • VMs in the "guru meditation" state can be destroyed now using vagrant destroy.
  • Fix issue where changing SSH key permissions didn't properly work. [GH-911]
  • Fix issue where Vagrant didn't properly detect VBoxManage on Windows if VBOX_INSTALL_PATH contained multiple paths. [GH-885]
  • Fix typo in setting host name for Gentoo guests. [GH-931]
  • Files that are included with vagrant package --include now properly preserve file attributes on earlier versions of Ruby. [GH-951]
  • Multiple interfaces now work with Arch linux guests. [GH-957]
  • Fix issue where subprocess execution would always spin CPU of Ruby process to 100%. [GH-832]
  • Fix issue where shell provisioner would sometimes never end. [GH-968]
  • Fix issue where puppet would reorder module paths. [GH-964]
  • When console input is asked for (destroying a VM, bridged interfaces, etc.), keystrokes such as ctrl-D and ctrl-C are more gracefully handled. [GH-1017]
  • Fixed bug where port check would use "localhost" on systems where "localhost" is not available. [GH-1057]
  • Add missing translation for "saving" state on VirtualBox. [GH-1110]
  • Proper error message if the remote end unexpectedly resets the connection while downloading a box over HTTP. [GH-1090]
  • Human-friendly error is raised if there are permission issues when using SCP to upload files. [GH-924]
  • Box adding doesn't use /tmp anymore which can avoid some cross-device copy issues. [GH-1199]
  • Vagrant works properly in folders with strange characters. [GH-1223]
  • Vagrant properly handles "paused" VirtualBox machines. [GH-1184]
  • Better behavior around permissions issues when copying insecure private key. [GH-580]

1.0.7 (March 13, 2013)

  • Detect if a newer version of Vagrant ran and error if it did, because we're not forward-compatible.
  • Check for guest additions version AFTER booting. [GH-1179]
  • Quote IdentityFile in ssh-config so private keys with spaces in the path work. [GH-1322]
  • Fix issue where multiple Puppet module paths can be re-ordered [GH-964]
  • Shell provisioner won't hang on Windows anymore due to unclosed tempfile. [GH-1040]
  • Retry setting default VM name, since it sometimes fails first time. [GH-1368]
  • Support setting hostname on Suse [GH-1063]

1.0.6 (December 21, 2012)

  • Shell provisioner outputs proper line endings on Windows [GH-1164]
  • SSH upload opens file to stream which fixes strange upload issues.
  • Check for proper exit codes for Puppet, since multiple exit codes can mean success. [GH-1180]
  • Fix issue where DNS doesn't resolve properly for 12.10. [GH-1176]
  • Allow hostname to be a substring of the box name for Ubuntu [GH-1163]
  • Use puppet agent instead of puppetd to be Puppet 3.x compatible. [GH-1169]
  • Work around bug in VirtualBox exposed by bug in OS X 10.8 where VirtualBox executables couldn't handle garbage being injected into stdout by OS X.

1.0.5 (September 18, 2012)

  • Work around a critical bug in VirtualBox 4.2.0 on Windows that causes Vagrant to not work. [GH-1130]
  • Plugin loading works better on Windows by using the proper file path separator.
  • NFS works on Fedora 16+. [GH-1140]
  • NFS works with newer versions of Arch hosts that use systemd. [GH-1142]

  • VirtualBox 4.2 driver. [GH-1120]
  • Correct ssh-config help to use --host, not -h.
  • Use "127.0.0.1" instead of "localhost" for port checking to fix problem where "localhost" is not properly setup. [GH-1057]
  • Disable read timeout on Net::HTTP to avoid rbuf_fill error. [GH-1072]
  • Retry SSH on EHOSTUNREACH errors.
  • Add missing translation for "saving" state. [GH-1110]

1.0.3 (May 1, 2012)

  • Don't enable NAT DNS proxy on machines where resolv.conf already points to localhost. This allows Vagrant to work once again with Ubuntu 12.04. [GH-909]

1.0.2 (March 25, 2012)

  • Provisioners will still mount folders and such if --no-provision is used, so that vagrant provision works. [GH-803]
  • Nicer error message if an unsupported SSH key type is used. [GH-805]
  • Gentoo guests can now have their host names changed. [GH-796]
  • Relative paths can be used for the config.ssh.private_key_path setting. [GH-808]
  • vagrant ssh now works on Solaris, where IdentitiesOnly was not an available option. [GH-820]
  • Output works properly in the face of broken pipes. [GH-819]
  • Enable Host IO Cache on the SATA controller by default.
  • Chef-solo provisioner now supports encrypted data bags. [GH-816]

  • Multiple VM names can be specified for the various commands now. For example: vagrant up web db service. [GH-795]
  • More robust error handling if a VM fails to boot. The error message is much clearer now. [GH-825]

1.0.1 (March 11, 2012)

  • Installers are now bundled with Ruby 1.9.3p125. Previously they were bundled with 1.9.3p0. This actually fixes some IO issues with Windows.
  • Windows installer now outputs a vagrant binary that will work in msys or Cygwin environments.
  • Fix crashing issue which manifested itself in multi-VM environments.
  • Add missing rubygems require in environment.rb to avoid possible load errors. [GH-781]
  • vagrant destroy shows a nice error when called without a TTY (and hence can't confirm). [GH-779]
  • Fix an issue with the :vagrantfile_name option to Vagrant::Environment not working properly. [GH-778]
  • VAGRANT_CWD environmental variable can be used to set the CWD to something other than the current directory.
  • Downloading boxes from servers that don't send a content-length now works properly. [GH-788]
  • The :facter option now works for puppet server. [GH-790]
  • The --no-provision and --provision-with flags are available to vagrant reload now.
  • :openbsd guest which supports only halting at the moment. [GH-773]
  • ssh-config -h now shows help, instead of assuming a host is being specified. For host, you can still use --host. [GH-793]

1.0.0 (March 6, 2012)

  • vagrant gem should now be used to install Vagrant plugins that are gems. This installs the gems to a private gem folder that Vagrant adds to its own load path. This isolates Vagrant-related gems from system gems.
  • Plugin loading no longer happens right when Vagrant is loaded, but when a Vagrant environment is loaded. I don't anticipate this causing any problems but it is a backwards incompatible change should a plugin depend on this (but I don't see any reason why they would).
  • vagrant destroy now asks for confirmation by default. This can be overridden with the --force flag. [GH-699]
  • Fix issue with Puppet config inheritance. [GH-722]
  • Fix issue where starting a VM on some systems was incorrectly treated as failing. [GH-720]
  • It is now an error to specify the packaging output as a directory. [GH-730]
  • Unix-style line endings are used properly for guest OS. [GH-727]
  • Retry certain VirtualBox operations, since they intermittently fail. [GH-726]
  • Fix issue where Vagrant would sometimes "lose" a VM if an exception occurred. [GH-725]
  • vagrant destroy destroys virtual machines in reverse order. [GH-739]
  • Add an fsid option to Linux NFS exports. [GH-736]
  • Fix edge case where an exception could be raised in networking code. [GH-742]
  • Add missing translation for the "guru meditation" state. [GH-745]
  • Check that VirtualBox exists before certain commands. [GH-746]
  • NIC type can be defined for host-only network adapters. [GH-750]
  • Fix issue where re-running chef-client would sometimes cause problems due to file permissions. [GH-748]
  • FreeBSD guests can now have their hostnames changed. [GH-757]
  • FreeBSD guests now support host only networking and bridged networking. [GH-762]
  • VM#run_action is now public so plugin-devs can hook into it.
  • Fix crashing bug when attempting to run commands on the "primary" VM in a multi-VM environment. [GH-761]
  • With puppet you can now specify :facter as a dictionary of facts to override what is generated by Puppet. [GH-753]
  • Automatically convert all arguments to customize to strings.
  • openSUSE host system. [GH-766]
  • Fix subprocess IO deadlock which would occur on Windows. [GH-765]

  • Fix regression where all subprocess IO simply didn't work with Windows. [GH-721]

0.9.6 (February 7, 2012)

  • Fix strange issue with inconsistent childprocess reads on JRuby. [GH-711]
  • vagrant ssh does a direct exec() syscall now instead of going through the shell. This makes it so things like shell expansion oddities no longer cause problems. [GH-715]
  • Fix crashing case if there are no ports to forward.
  • Fix issue surrounding improper configuration of host only networks on RedHat guests. [GH-719]
  • NFS should work properly on Gentoo. [GH-706]

0.9.5 (February 5, 2012)

0.9.0 (January 17, 2012)

  • VirtualBox 4.0 support backported in addition to supporting VirtualBox 4.1.
  • config.vm.network syntax changed so that the first argument is now the type of argument. Previously where you had config.vm.network "33.33.33.10" you should now put config.vm.network :hostonly, "33.33.33.10". This is in order to support bridged networking, as well.
  • config.vm.forward_port no longer requires a name parameter.
  • Bridged networking. config.vm.network with :bridged as the option will setup a bridged network.
  • Host only networks can be configured with DHCP now. Specify :dhcp as the IP and it will be done.
  • config.vm.customize now takes a command to send to VBoxManage, so any arbitrary command can be sent. The older style of passing a block no longer works and Vagrant will give a proper error message if it notices this old-style being used.
  • config.ssh.forwarded_port_key is gone. Vagrant no longer cares about forwarded port names for any reason. Please use config.ssh.guest_port (more below).
  • config.ssh.forwarded_port_destination has been replaced by config.ssh.guest_port which more accurately reflects what it is used for. Vagrant will automatically scan forwarded ports that match the guest port to find the SSH port.
  • Logging. The entire Vagrant source has had logging sprinkled throughout to make debugging issues easier. To enable logging, set the VAGRANT_LOG environmental variable to the log level you wish to see. By default, logging is silent.
  • system renamed to guest throughout the source. Any config.vm.system configurations must be changed to config.vm.guest
  • Puppet provisioner no longer defaults manifest to "box.pp." Instead, it is now "default.pp"
  • All Vagrant commands that take a VM name in a Multi-VM environment can now be given a regular expression. If the name starts and ends with a "/" then it is assumed to be a regular expression. [GH-573]
  • Added a "--plain" flag to vagrant ssh which will cause Vagrant to not perform any authentication. It will simply ssh into the proper IP and port of the virtual machine.
  • If a shared folder now has a :create flag set to true, the path on the host will be created if it doesn't exist.
  • Added --force flag to box add, which will overwite any existing boxes if they exist. [GH-631]
  • Added --provision-with to up which configures what provisioners run, by shortcut. [GH-367]
  • Arbitrary mount options can be passed with :extra to any shared folders. [GH-551]
  • Options passed after a -- to vagrant ssh are now passed directly to ssh. [GH-554]
  • Ubuntu guests will now emit a vagrant-mounted upstart event after shared folders are mounted.
  • attempts is a new option on chef client and chef solo provisioners. This will run the provisioner multiple times until erroring about failing convergence. [GH-282]
  • Removed Thor as a dependency for the command line interfaces. This resulted in general speed increases across all command line commands.
  • Linux uses shutdown -h instead of halt to hopefully more consistently power off the system. [GH-575]
  • Tweaks to SSH to hopefully be more reliable in coming up.
  • Helpful error message when SCP is unavailable in the guest. [GH-568]
  • Error message for improperly packaged box files. [GH-198]
  • Copy insecure private key to user-owned directory so even sudo installed Vagrant installations work. [GH-580]
  • Provisioner stdout/stderr is now color coded based on stdout/stderr. stdout is green, stderr is red. [GH-595]
  • Chef solo now prompts users to run a reload if shared folders are not found on the VM. [GH-253]
  • "--no-provision" once again works for certain commands. [GH-591]
  • Resuming a VM from a saved state will show an error message if there would be port collisions. [GH-602]
  • vagrant ssh -c will now exit with the same exit code as the command run. [GH-598]
  • vagrant ssh -c will now send stderr to stderr and stdout to stdout on the host machine, instead of all output to stdout.
  • vagrant box add path now accepts unexpanded shell paths such as ~/foo and will properly expand them. [GH-633]
  • Vagrant can now be interrupted during the "importing" step.
  • NFS exports will no longer be cleared when an expected error occurs. [GH-577]

  • NFS should work for FreeBSD hosts now. [GH-510]
  • SSH executed methods respect config.ssh.max_tries. [GH-508]
  • vagrant box add now respects the "no_proxy" environmental variable. [GH-502]
  • Tweaks that should make "Waiting for VM to boot" slightly more reliable.
  • Add comments to Vagrantfile to make it detected as Ruby file for vi and emacs. [GH-515]
  • More correct guest addition version checking. [GH-514]
  • Chef solo support on Windows is improved. [GH-542]

  • Gentoo guests now support host only networks. [GH-240]
  • RedHat (CentOS included) guests now support host only networks. [GH-260]
  • New Vagrantfile syntax for enabling and configuring provisioners. This change is not backwards compatible. [GH-265]
  • Provisioners are now RVM-friendly, meaning if you installed chef or puppet with an RVM managed Ruby, Vagrant now finds then. [GH-254]
  • Changed the unused host only network destroy mechanism to check for uselessness after the VM is destroyed. This should result in more accurate checks.
  • Networks are no longer disabled upon halt/destroy. With the above change, its unnecessary.
  • Puppet supports module_path configuration to mount local modules directory as a shared folder and configure puppet with it. [GH-270]
  • ssh-config now outputs 127.0.0.1 as the host instead of localhost.

  • Properly load sub-VM configuration on first-pass of config loading. Solves a LOT of problems with multi-VM. [GH-166] [GH-181]
  • Configuration now only validates on final Vagrantfile proc, so multi-VM validates correctly.
  • A nice error message is given if ".vagrant" is a directory and therefore can't be accessed. [GH-172]
  • Fix plugin loading in a Rails 2.3.x project. [GH-176]

  • Default VM name is now properly the parent folder of the working directory of the environment.
  • Added method to TestHelpers to assist with testing new downloaders.

  • Action warden doesn't do recovery process on SystemExit exceptions, allowing the double ctrl-C to work properly again. [related to GH-166]
  • Initial Vagrantfile is now heavily commented with various available options. [GH-171]
  • Box add checks if a box already exists before the download. [GH-170]

0.6.1, 0.6.2, 0.6.3 (September 27, 2010)

A lot of quick releases which all were to fix issues with Ruby 1.8.7 compatibility.

0.6.0 (September 27, 2010)

  • VM name now defaults to the name of the containing folder, plus a timestamp. This should make it easier to identify VMs in the VirtualBox GUI.
  • Exposed Vagrant test helpers in Vagrant::TestHelpers for plugins to easily test themselves against Vagrant environments.
  • Plugins have landed. Plugins are simply gems which have a vagrant_init.rb file somewhere in their load path. Please read the documentation on vagrantup.com before attempting to create a plugin (which is very easy) for more information on how it all works and also some guidelines.
  • vagrant package now takes a --vagrantfile option to specify a Vagrantfile to package. The --include approach for including a Vagrantfile no longer works (previously built boxes will continue to work).
  • vagrant package has new logic with regards to the --include option depending on if the file path is relative or absolute (they can be intermixed):
    • Relative paths are copied directly into the box, preserving their path. So --include lib/foo would be in the box as "lib/foo"
    • Absolute paths are simply copied files into the root of the box. So --include /lib/foo would be in the box as "foo"
  • "vagrant_main" is no longer the default run list. Instead, chef run list starts empty. It is up to you to specify all recipes in the Vagrantfile now.
  • Fixed various issues with certain action middleware not working if the VM was not created.
  • SSH connection is retried 5 times if there is a connection refused. Related to GH-140.
  • If http_proxy environmental variable is set, it will be used as the proxy box adding via http.
  • Remove config.ssh.password. It hasn't been used for a few versions now and was only kept around to avoid exceptions in Vagrantfiles.
  • Configuration is now validated so improper input can be found in Vagrantfiles.
  • Fixed issue with not detecting Vagrantfile at root directory ("/").
  • Vagrant now gives a nice error message if there is a syntax error in any Vagrantfile. [GH-154]
  • The format of the ".vagrant" file which stores persisted VMs has changed. This is backwards incompatible. Will provide an upgrade utility prior to 0.6 launch.
  • Every [expected] Vagrant error now exits with a clean error message and a unique exit status, and raises a unique exception (if you're scripting Vagrant).
  • Added I18n gem dependency for pulling strings into clean YML files. Vagrant is now localizable as a side effect! Translations welcome.
  • Fixed issue with "Waiting for cleanup" message appearing twice in some cases. [GH-145]
  • Converted CLI to use Thor. As a tradeoff, there are some backwards incompatibilities:
    • vagrant package - The --include flag now separates filenames by spaces, instead of by commas. e.g. vagrant package --include x y z
    • vagrant ssh - If you specify a command to execute using the --execute flag, you may now only specify one command (before you were able to specify an arbitrary amount). e.g. vagrant ssh -e "echo hello"
    • vagrant ssh-config has become vagrant ssh_config due to a limitation in Thor.

0.5.4 (September 7, 2010)

  • Fix issue with the "exec failed" by running on Tiger as well.
  • Give an error when downloading a box which already exists prior to actually downloading the box.

0.5.3 (August 23, 2010)

  • Add erubis as a dependency since its rendering of erb is sane.
  • Fixed poorly formatted Vagrantfile after vagrant init. [GH-142]
  • Fixed NFS not working properly with multiple NFS folders.
  • Fixed chef solo provision to work on Windows. It was expanding a linux path which prepended a drive letter onto it.

0.5.2 (August 3, 2010)

  • vagrant up can be used as a way to resume the VM as well (same as vagrant resume). [GH-134]
  • Sudo uses "-E" flag to preserve environment for chef provisioners. This fixes issues with CentOS. [GH-133]
  • Added "IdentitiesOnly yes" to options when vagrant ssh is run to avoid "Too Many Authentication Failures" error. [GH-131]
  • Fix regression with package not working. [GH-132]
  • Added ability to specify box url in init, which populates the Vagrantfile with the proper config.vm.box_url.

0.5.1 (July 31, 2010)

  • Allow specifying cookbook paths which exist only on the VM in config.chef.cookbooks_path. This is used for specifying cookbook paths when config.chef.recipe_url is used. [GH-130] See updated chef solo documentation for more information on this.
  • No longer show "Disabling host only networks..." if no host only networks are destroyed. Quiets destroy, halt, etc output a bit.
  • Updated getting started guide to be more up to date and generic. [GH-125]
  • Fixed error with doing a vagrant up when no Vagrantfile existed. [GH-128]
  • Fixed NFS erroring when NFS wasn't even enabled if /etc/exports doesn't exist. [GH-126]
  • Fixed vagrant resume to properly resume a suspended VM. [GH-122]
  • Fixed halt, destroy, reload to where they failed if the VM was in a saved state. [GH-123]
  • Added config.chef.recipe_url which allows you to specify a URL to a gzipped tar file for chef solo to download cookbooks. See the chef-solo docs for more information. [GH-121]
  • Added vagrant box repackage which repackages boxes which have been added. This is useful in case you want to redistribute a base box you have but may have lost the actual "box" file. [GH-120]
