Ussuri Series Release Notes

New Features

  • It is now possible to modify the NTP server options in chrony using security_ntp_server_options.

  • Chrony got a new configuration option to synchronize the system clock back to the RTC using the security_ntp_sync_rtc variable. Disabled by default.

Upgrade Notes

  • Changed the default NTP server options in chrony.conf. The offline option has been removed, minpoll/maxpoll have been removed in favour of the upstream defaults, while the iburst option was added to speed up initial time synchronization.

Deprecation Notes

  • Fedora is no longer tested in CI for each commit.
