Portus 2.2 has been released!

In October we planned the 2.2.0 release of Portus, and a lot of things have happened meanwhile (see this and this). This means that even if our initial goals were quite modest, we had to be more conservative in regards of the features and fixes that we could actually deliver for this new release of Portus.

For this reason, this release is more about fixing issues, rather than adding new shiny features. That being said, there are a couple of improvements that we would like to highlight:

  • portusctl will now raise a warning whenever you are trying to use the --local-registry flag, but the package is not installed in your local computer. This was a common pitfall for openSUSE and SLE users, so we decided to go ahead and improve this situation.
  • Portus now also supports Docker Distribution 2.5 and 2.6. In these two releases, the developers of Docker Distribution polished some rough edges that needed to be taken into consideration on the Portus side.

Besides these features, we have included lots of fixes for bugs that the community has been spotting in past releases. You can read about this on the changelog.

Upgrading from Portus 2.1.x

All the details for upgrading from 2.1.x to 2.2 have been detailed in this page. The instructions are quite simple: only a simple database migration is needed.


In the following days we will specify all the details about the next release.
