Baserock 15.25 is released!
The Baserock reference systems are defined using version 3 of the definitions format. In 15.19, version 3 was used.
The baserock-15.25 tag of definitions can be built with Morph from 15.19. This should mean upgrading is fairly simple.
The version of Morph in Baserock 15.25 can build definitions versions 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. For more information about these versions, see here: http://wiki.baserock.org/definitions
Changes since 15.19
The OpenStack services added in 15.19 were upgraded to the Kilo release (tag 2015.1.0).
A java-build stratum was added, containing the things necessary to build OpenJDK, and existing reference systems which use Java were updated to use this. However, this still requires the injection of a prebuilt JDK binary at build time.
Deployment extensions were all moved into the same place, the
extensionssubdirectory in definitions. This allows us to decouple the interface of the extensions from morph. Previously, any change to this interface would need a new version of definitions. Places where names of these are given (the
type:field in clusters, and the
configure-extensions:field in systems) need to be updated by prepending the name with
extensions/to reflect this move.
If version 5 of the definitions format is used, morph will strip debug symbols from the binaries it builds by default. The symbols are put in /usr/lib/debug in the resulting system. This behaviour can be overridden by using the
strip-commandsfield in chunk morphologies.
/etc/inputrc added; now the delete key should work correctly.
Numerous components moved between strata.
New components added:
Some components have been updated:
- boost 1.57.0
- btrfs-progs 4.0
- ceph 0.94.1.1
- dbus 1.9.16
- gstreamer 1.0
- mesa 10.6.0-rc1
- qtwebkit 5.4.2
- systemd v220
- zlib 1.2.8
Updates to Morph, Baserock's build tool, including:
Support for definitions version 4, which is used as a marker to cause versions of Morph that do not contain the fix from here to exit with a version error rather than crashing.
Support for definitions version 5 (allow strip-commands in chunk morphologies; set PYTHONPATH when running deployment extensions to contain the extensions directory)
Configuration extensions no longer form part of the cache key for systems.
Thanks to everyone who has provided code, documentation, sponsorship or feedback for this Baserock release!
