Engine Yard Release Notes- February 2017

Engine Yard Stack Release Notes for February 22th, 2017

Minor: Engine Yard Gentoo 12.11 stack upgrade

Action: You apply the following changes the next time you click the Upgrade button for your Engine Yard Gentoo 12.11 environment.

Note: For clarity, since we now have 2 Gentoo stacks, we refer to this stack as the Engine Yard Gentoo 12.11 stack. You can access it by using the Stack select field in the Environment UI:

stack_stable-v4_2.0.png

It's best practice to upgrade your Engine Yard Gentoo 12.11 (stable-v4) stack regularly for the latest security and product updates.

  • Hotfix Notes: Fixed missing backup functionality from previous release.

Warning: Breaking Change. This release adds a `--force` option to `eybackup`; if you have scripts performing automated restores in a testing environment you'll need to add the `--force` option to bypass the user prompt. Alternatively, you could switch to using `eyrestore` which is also part of this release.
