Release Notes

Hi garden consumers! We’re pleased to present a fresh new garden release with the following great new features: - Fixed significant performance degradation for long-running deployments (due to a memory leak in a dependency). - Support for a new ContainerSpec.Limits.Pid.Max field to limit max processes in a container (note: uses new PID cgroup, requires 4.4+ kernels) - No default for debug_listen_address property any more - default is not to listen. If you wish to enable debugging, you should explicitly opt in. - We now use the iptables-restore packaged in the bosh release rather than relying on whatever’s in the base OS - Improvements to network_plugin API for BulkNetOut - Improvements to image_plugin API. Now testing against grootfs in pipeline and listing compatible versions in these very release notes.

You will notice that these very release notes now list compatible versions of grootfs. These are the releases we have tested this version of garden-runc against. GrootFS is the new Garden Root Filesystem management component. We intend to eventually deprecate the built-in rootfs management in Garden in favour of GrootFS. At this point GrootFS is (very) experimental, but those who wish to test with it can find instructions in the grootfs-release repo. We will officially deprecate the built-in rootfs manager and then give a timeline for its removal in later releases.

Happy Gardening!
