    🛠 This is a bugfix and compatibility release.

    Important changes

    ⚡️ Updated X.509 certificate signing algorithm

    🔒 Ganeti now uses the SHA-256 digest algorithm to sign all generated X.509 certificates used to secure the RPC communications between nodes. Previously, Ganeti was using SHA-1 which is seen as weak (but not broken) and has been deprecated by most vendors; most notably, OpenSSL — used by Ganeti on some setups — rejects SHA-1-signed certificates when configured to run on security level 2 and above.

    Users are advised to re-generate Ganeti's server and node certificates after installing 2.16.1 on all nodes using the following command:

      gnt-cluster renew-crypto --new-cluster-certificate

    On setups using RAPI and/or SPICE with Ganeti-generated certificates, --new-rapi-certificate and --new-spice-certificate should be appended to the command above.

    QEMU 3.1 compatibility

    👀 Previous versions of Ganeti used QEMU command line options that were removed in QEMU 3.1, leading to an inability to start KVM instances with QEMU 3.1. This version restores compatibility with QEMU 3.1 by adapting to these changes. This was done in a backwards-compatible way, however there is one special case: Users using VNC with X.509 support enabled will need to be running at least QEMU 2.5. See #1342 for details.

    🆕 Newer GHC support

    🏗 Ganeti 2.16.0 could only be built using GHC versions prior to 7.10, as GHC 7.10 and later versions introduced breaking API changes that made the build fail.

    🚀 This release introduces support for building with newer GHC versions: Ganeti is now known to build with GHC 8.0, 8.2 and 8.4. Furthermore, Ganeti can now be built with snap-server 1.0 as well as hinotify 0.3.10 and later. Previously supported versions of GHC and of these libraries remain supported.
