Newton Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Adds support for IPv6

  • Stale load balancer entries with DELETED provisioning_status are now cleaned-up by housekeeper after if they are older than load_balancer_expiry_age.

  • Adds support for networks that do not have DHCP services enabled.

Upgrade Notes

  • To support IPv6 a databse migration and amphora image update are required.

  • To fix the admin-state-up bug you must upgrade your amphora image.

  • To enabled encrypted ramfs storage for certificates and keys, you must upgrade your amphora image.

  • New option load_balancer_expiry_age is added to the house_keeping config section. It defines load balancer expiry age in seconds, the default value is 604800.

  • To support networks without DHCP you must upgrade your amphora image.

Deprecation Notes

  • Amphora with a terminated HTTPS load balancer can no longer be rebooted. If they reboot, they will trigger a failover of the amphora.

Security Issues

  • Certificate and key storage for terminated HTTPS load balancers is now in an encrypted ramfs path inside the amphora.

  • Allows the operator to optionally restrict the amphora glance image selection to a specific owner id. This is a recommended security setting for clouds that allow user uploadable images.

Bug Fixes

  • Resolves an issue with subnets larger than /24

  • Fixes admin-state-up=False action for loadbalancer and listener.
