Flux v1.18.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-02-06 // 17 days ago
  • 🚀 This is a feature release with quite a few new features and fixes.

    It includes new flags for fluxd and fluxctl; namely, it includes a new flag to disable registry scanning completely (--registry-disable-scanning) 🚀 which allows deploying Flux without Memcached.

    There is a new .flux.yaml variant (scanForFiles) which allows telling Flux to scan the local files, which is useful when mixing --manifest-generation with raw manifests.

    🛠 This release also includes a few bugfixes. Namely, it comes with a fix for a 🚚 filesystem leak in which git clone mirrors weren't being removed.
