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::TestHelpersfor plugins to easily test themselves against Vagrant environments.
- Plugins have landed. Plugins are simply gems which have a
vagrant_init.rbfile 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 packagenow takes a
--vagrantfileoption to specify a Vagrantfile to package. The
--includeapproach for including a Vagrantfile no longer works (previously built boxes will continue to work).
vagrant packagehas new logic with regards to the
--includeoption 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/foowould be in the box as "lib/foo"
- Absolute paths are simply copied files into the root of the
--include /lib/foowould be in the box as "foo"
- Relative paths are copied directly into the box, preserving their path. So
- "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.
http_proxyenvironmental variable is set, it will be used as the proxy box adding via http.
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
vagrant package- The
--includeflag 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
--executeflag, 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-confighas become
vagrant ssh_configdue 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
- 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 upcan 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 sshis run to avoid "Too Many Authentication Failures" error. [GH-131]
- Fix regression with
packagenot working. [GH-132]
- Added ability to specify box url in
init, which populates the Vagrantfile with the proper
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_urlis 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
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 upwhen no Vagrantfile existed. [GH-128]
- Fixed NFS erroring when NFS wasn't even enabled if
/etc/exportsdoesn't exist. [GH-126]
vagrant resumeto properly resume a suspended VM. [GH-122]
reloadto where they failed if the VM was in a saved state. [GH-123]
config.chef.recipe_urlwhich 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]
vagrant box repackagewhich 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]
The changelog began with version 0.5.1 so any changes prior to that can be seen by checking the tagged releases and reading git commit messages.
