Xena Series Release Notes¶
Support for python2 in ironic-python-agent was dropped in the Ussuri release however it was still possible to build (non-functional) python2 images for CentOS 7. This python2 support is now dropped from the image build also. As part of this change, the pip-and-virtualenv element is not longer a dependency, so any custom elements which depend on this element will need to either include it explicitly or migrate to the recommended ensure-venv element.
Fixes issues with ramdisks potentially crashing when starting due to systemd attempting to access a random number generator before udevd has been launched. Depending on the mode of operation and underlying and configuration, i.e. in FIPS mode, the system could have crashed as a result. We will now always create the character devices devices, which can be used early in the boot sequence.
iscsideploy interface is no longer supported by the DIB builder, use ironic-python-agent-builder 2.7.0 or older for it.
The tinyIPA build no longer supports the
iscsideploy interface. Please use version 2.6.0 or older for this.
Fedora is no longer explicitly supported for DIB-based builds.
The pre-built images now use CentOS Stream 8 instead of CentOS 8.
