    Juju GUI 1.3.1 Maintenance Release 

    Following quickly on the heals of the 1.3.0 release which included the new Added Services bar we are putting out a maintenance release which includes a few fixes like:

    • Modifying the visibility of a service using the Added Services bar now animates the service icons on the canvas.
    • UI tweaks for the Inspector, Canvas, and Machine View.
    • (FIX) Change Version option now includes the most recent release version.
    • (FIX) Charm configuration options with null default values are now respected when being deployed or when exporting bundle configurations.

    For those who usually upgrade their charms via the GUI this release will be especially interesting because it fixes an issue where the most recent charm release wouldn’t always show up in the Change Version section of the service’s inspector. You will want to upgrade your existing GUI instance using the CLI for this release to make sure you get the most recent version. Every other release can then be upgraded as usual via the Change Version section of the service inspector. If you aren’t familiar with the Juju CLI the command is:

    juju upgrade-charm juju-gui

    Thanks to everyone who tried out the previous release and submitted bugs and feature requests. We always love to hear your feedback and continue to squash bugs as they pop up. If you have any questions or comments you can find us in #juju-gui and #juju on irc.freenode.net or bugs can be filed on launchpad.

    Jujucharms.com large sweeping update #1 


    We released a really big update to the jujucharms.com website today. Weeks of hard work from the team and the site now includes a number of great improvements.

    Since the original launch we’ve fixed a number of bugs and:

    • The Juju docs are now relocated and searchable as part of the new site.
    • A new community page where we’ll be building off a suite of community information and tools.
    • A big set of performance improvements from the original launch including better use of cache headers, great improvements to the back end api, and minimized requests across the board.

    I have to say the team kicked butt in getting this set of improvements out and it’ll only get better from here as we work towards a weekly release cadence.

    If you find any issues please make sure to file them in our issue tracker https://github.com/CanonicalLtd/jujucharms.com

    Long live the new home of Juju!

    Juju GUI 1.3.0 Released – Now with Added Services view 

    The Added Services side bar has now been released. This view allows you to highlight and fade services so that you can focus on a smaller segment of your complex environment. Highlighted and faded services will also modify the visibility of machines in the machine view respective to the options selected. To access the added services bar simply click the ‘Added Services’ button at the top of the charm browser then click the light bulb or eye icon to highlight or fade the respective service.


    We have now added a new port configuration option to the Juju GUI charm. This highly requested feature allows you to specify a custom port for the Juju GUI to run on allowing you to run the GUI on a machine or container which already has a service running on port 80 or 443.

    Plus 9 other pull requests including bug fixes and enhancements which you can read more about in the changelog.

    We would love to hear what you think of the new features we have been adding over the past couple months, including the new Added Services bar. If you have any questions or comments you can find us in #juju-gui and #juju on irc.freenode.net or bugs can be filed on launchpad.

    Juju Quickstart 1.5.0 

    The UI Engineering Team is proud to announce the 1.5.0 release of Juju Quickstart!
    Juju Quickstart helps both new and experienced users to quickly start Juju and the Juju GUI,
    whether they’ve never installed Juju or they have an existing Juju environment running.

    The new release includes the following new features:

    • Initial support for the manual provider type.
      Juju Quickstart can now be used to configure Juju, set up
      the Juju GUI and run an environment using manual provisioning.
    • Better integration with MAAS (Bare Metal):
      improved the way node addresses are retrieved, also handling the
      case where the MAAS DNS server is not being used on
      the local machine where Juju Quickstart is running.
      Also automatically detect a logged in MAAS API, so that
      it is possible to use the stored credentials to create and
      bootstrap a MAAS environment without user intervention.
    • Improve the way the application detects the Juju environment
      is already running. This results in a faster, more reliable and
      less expensive execution of Juju Quickstart when invoked
      on an already bootstrapped environment.
    • The interactive session environment editing view now
      shows required fields first, so that users can more
      quickly create/change their Juju environments’ definitions.
    • Interactive session no longer hides errors under certain
    • Also note that, starting from this release, Juju Quickstart
      no longer supports Juju < 1.18

    To install and start Juju Quickstart, run these commands:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install juju-quickstart
    juju-quickstart [-i]

    For more details, have a look at this blog post.
