BoxGrinder news

New website!

imageSince yesterday BoxGrinder has a new project page and community space! We're very proud to see our kid standing on its own legs.

BoxGrinder Build 0.5.1 released

With the new site we released also a new BoxGrinder version: 0.5.1. This is mostly a bugfix release including boxgrinder-core, boxgrinder-build and a few plugins. Here is the full list of bugs fixed in this release:

  • [BGBUILD-40] - Augeas kills guestfish after 'aug_init "/" 0'
  • [BGBUILD-43] - ec2-ami-tools is not usable on EC2 appliances
  • [BGBUILD-44] - ExecHelper should raise exception if execution fails
  • [BGBUILD-45] - system-config-securitylevel-tui package is required on RHEL/CentOS 5

To update BoxGrinder to latest version run this command:

gem update boxgrinder-core boxgrinder-build boxgrinder-build-rpm-based-os-plugin boxgrinder-build-fedora-os-plugin boxgrinder-build-rhel-os-plugin boxgrinder-build-centos-os-plugin boxgrinder-build-fedora-os-plugin boxgrinder-build-ec2-platform-plugin

A bit long, but should do the work. If you have questions, we're for you in our new forums.
