Release Notes: Version 2.1 is the first official release of W\2, and it includes a major rewrite of almost all of the tools, as well as architecture changes to make it much more flexible and easier to maintain.
Release Notes: A bug has been fixed in wulfd with regard to large memory and use of atol(l). A bug in the nodes with dhcpd restarting with a lost return code has been fixed. Masterconf is easier to use.
Release Notes: The purpose of this release is to fix a typo/bug in the Warewulf library that caused most tools to error out.
Release Notes: Support has been added for various authentication mechanisms (NIS, LDAP, etc) for the master node. Plugins have been built for Nagios so that node status can be easily monitored. Tiny RAM disk support using NFS root has been built (very experimental). Some packages have been added to the virtual node file system, and some code has been cleaned up.
Release Notes: Bugs in filtering the master node and some permission issues in the node filesystem have been fixed. There was a bug in the glance page of wwmon with the network utilization, and Tx/Rx traffic has been moved to separate monitors. Support has been added for non-standard kernel locations in nodebuild.
Release Notes: This version features minor bugfixes in several components. It removes Perl from slave nodefs, and now uses Vikrum's wulfd ported to C. It changes the node's warewulf-init script to mount a local partition based on disk label (must be labeled 'ww-data'), and modifies the nodebuild so it only uses the modules defined in /etc/warewulf/config (to save space). It also slims down the node filesystem so it is under 50M.
Release Notes: A fix for a permission issue in the node filesystem with /dev/zero and a bug in nodeupdate regarding node permissions. Some GUI bugs were also fixed, and optimizations were made in wwnodes.
Release Notes: This release adds support in dhcp-build for PXE/Etherbooting (/etc/warewulf/node.conf now takes an additional configuration item "pxeboot" to support this), support in dhcp-build for node-specific Warewulf RAMDISK boot images (the node.conf parameter is "bootimg", and it overrides the default; this is just the first stage, and it has not been documented yet), and support for SWAP monitoring. The output of "wwmon" and "wwstat" has been modified.
Release Notes: Nodes can now be displayed with wwmon, wwstat, and wwnodes. The commands now default to only showing nodes that the user has access to. A NODES environment variable can be used to either list nodes or point to a file containing a node list. Bugs in nodeupdate and masterconf were fixed, and wwmon and wwstat now can query remote master nodes. warewulfd now outputs a node's short name instead of its FQDN.
Release Notes: The "Node Shell" button has been renamed to "Virtual Node" and "Remote Shell" added to avoid confusion in nodes. 'nodeupdate' no longer writes an /etc/hosts that did not work with SGE (which is very touchy about the format of the /etc/hosts). The Warewulf.pm library has been created and the Warewulf tools rewritten to utilize it. Warewulfd has been changed to use gethostbyname() for node name resolution, thus no requirement to restart warewulfd when changing node configuration. The "Update Nodes" button has been added to 'nodes'. Another tab has been added to 'wwmon', and the data moved to make it more logical.
