1.1.0 (unreleased)

  • Improve the SSH "ready?" check. [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]

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]
  • Enable the NAT DNS proxy by default, allowing your DNS to continue working when you switch networks. [GH-834]
  • Checking for port forwarding collisions also checks for other applications that are potentially listening on that port as well. [GH-821]
  • 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]

  • 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]

  • 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]
  • Fedora 16 guest support. [GH-772]

0.9.6 (February 7, 2012)

  • Fix strange issue with inconsistent childprocess reads on JRuby. [GH-711]

  • Fix issue surrounding improper configuration of host only networks on RedHat guests. [GH-719]
  • NFS should work properly on Gentoo. [GH-706]

  • The NFS version can be specified with the :nfs_version option on shared folders. [GH-557]
  • Greatly improved FreeBSD guest and host support. [GH-695]
  • Fix instability with RedHat guests and host only and bridged networks. [GH-698]
  • When using bridged networking, only list the network interfaces that are up as choices. [GH-701]
  • More intelligent handling of the certname option for puppet server. [GH-702]
  • You may now explicitly set the network to bridge to in the Vagrantfile using the :bridge parameter. [GH-655]

0.9.4 (January 28, 2012)

  • Important internal changes to middlewares that make plugin developer's lives much easier. [GH-684]
  • Match VM names that have parens, brackets, etc.
  • Detect when the VirtualBox kernel module is not loaded and error. [GH-677]
  • Set :auto_config to false on any networking option to not automatically configure it on the guest. [GH-663]
  • NFS shared folder guest paths can now contain shell expansion characters such as ~.
  • NFS shared folders with a :create flag will have their host folders properly created if they don't exist. [GH-667]

  • Fix issue causing crashes with bridged networking. [GH-673]
  • Ignore host only network interfaces that are "down." [GH-675]

0.9.2 (January 20, 2012)

  • Support shell expansions in shared folder guest paths again. [GH-656]
  • Fix issue where Chef solo always expected the host to have a "cookbooks" folder in their directory. [GH-638]
  • Fix forward_agent not working when outside of blocks. [GH-651]
  • Fix issue causing custom guest implementations to not load properly.
  • Filter clear screen character out of output on SSH.
  • Log output now goes on stderr, since it is utility information.
  • Get rid of case where a NoMethodError could be raised while determining VirtualBox version. [GH-658]
  • Debian/Ubuntu uses ifdown again, instead of ifconfig xxx down, since the behavior seems different/wrong.
  • Give a nice error if :vagrant is used as a JSON key, since Vagrant uses this. [GH-661]
  • If there is only one bridgable interface, use that without asking the user. [GH-655]

0.9.0 (January 17, 2012)

  • VirtualBox 4.0 support backported in addition to supporting VirtualBox 4.1.
  • syntax changed so that the first argument is now the type of argument. Previously where you had "" you should now put :hostonly, "". This is in order to support bridged networking, as well.
  • config.vm.forward_port no longer requires a name parameter.
  • Bridged networking. 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]

  • 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]
  • NFS no longer attempts to clean exports file if VM is not created, which was causing a stack trace during recovery. [related to GH-166]
  • Basic validation added for Chef configuration (both solo and server).
  • Top config class is now available in all Vagrant::Config::Base subclasses, which is useful for config validation.
  • Subcommand help shows proper full command in task listing. [GH-168]
  • SSH gives error message if ssh binary is not found. [GH-161]
  • SSH gives proper error message if VM is not running. [GH-167]
  • Fix some issues with undefined constants in command errors.

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 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]
