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]
