Updates Quickview

New Featrues: Added support for custom Docker images through the BusyBox utility.

Changes: Actualized list of supported OS templates and software stack versions.

Fixed: Bug fixes implemented in the current release and integrated to previous versions.

Custom Docker Images with BusyBox Support

BusyBox is a minimalistic software suite that replaces basic functions of more than 300 common commands.

However, when installing a custom Docker image with BusyBox at Jelastic, the lack of functionality compared to the original tools affects the operability of the Jelastic services (e.g. logs and file managers).

Thus, in the current 5.8.5 platform release, support of the custom Docker images was extended to include templates with the BusyBox utility.

Namely, all the additionally required tools are installed as a part of the container after-creation process.

Fixes Compatible with Prior Versions

Below, you can find the fixes that were implemented in the Jelastic 5.8.5 release and also integrated into previous Jelastic versions by means of the appropriate patches.

Software Stack Versions

The software stack provisioning process is independent of the platform release, which allows new software solutions to be delivered as soon as they are ready. 

Herewith, due to the necessity to adapt and test new stack versions, there is a small delay between software release by its respective upstream maintainer and integration into Jelastic PaaS.

The most accurate and up-to-date list of the certified software stack versions can be found on Jelastic’s dedicated documentation page.
