What's new

These are the most important features you'll get by upgrading from 3.6.1 to 2018.6.5

Octopus 2018.5

Breaking Changes

We have upgraded the Azure SDK library and the Azure PowerShell modules to support the latest Azure features. Most notably missing was support for nested ARM templates, which will now work out of the box.

These upgrades have also forced the minimum supported environment for Octopus Server to Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 and PowerShell 5.0 so you'll need to plan your upgrade accordingly. The PowerShell 5.0 requirement is only if you are running the Azure PowerShell scripts.

Azure recently announced that from June 30th 2018 they are retiring support for Service Management API (NOTE: Management Certificates use Service Management API). This affects deployments to Azure App Services.

Please switch to using Service Principals for your Octopus Azure accounts

To configure the version of Azure PowerShell modules, we have made a change to the name of the variable. You can now set OctopusUseBundledAzureModules to False.

Octopus 2018.3

Changes in 2018.3

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

This month, we've greatly improved our support for infrastructure as code unlocking some incredible deployment automation and infrastructure automation scenarios. Octopus 2018.3 introduces support for GitHub repositories as feeds and first class terraform support as well as some awesome smaller features like Highlight Messages and Artifacts and . Read on for all the exciting details!

Upgrading

This release contains a few post-install data fixes that may take some time (depending on the size of your DeploymentProcess and Events tables), so please ensure you allow time for this to complete. If you are running the watchdog service, please ensure this is stopped during the upgrade.

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 2018.2

Changes in 2018.2

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

Octopus 2018.2 brings a number of exciting new features including the much requested step to deploy a release, the ability to deploy AWS CloudFormation templates, delete existing CloudFormation stacks, and run scripts with the AWS CLI.

Breaking Changes

If you are using an older version of Octopus.Client.dll to access /api/feeds/all then this will now error. You will need to update to >= 4.30.7 of Octopus.Client. The reason for this is that we have added a new feed type for releases of Octopus projects, to support the new Deploy Release step.

In anticipation of some upcoming new feed types we have hit the point where we were forced to revisit how we expose the packages API for external feeds, and how we store cached packages for deployments. Unless you are hitting the Octopus API directly to search through your external feeds or rely on specific naming of the cached packages, then there should be almost no impact to you. One side effect of the change to package cache names is that the current packages cache on the server and tentacles will be no longer checked so new deloyments will use the new package names. More details about these changes are available in the GitHub tickets "Packages API does not meet the requirements of our expanding feed types #4114" and "Modify the cache naming format to allow for new feed formats #4211".

Upgrading

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 2018.1

Changes in 2018.1

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

This January release of Octopus Deploy is primarily a security release driven by Octopus Cloud and will also benefit each of our customers running Octopus Deploy on-premises. We highly recommend upgrading.

You'll also notice our new versioning strategy: what would normally have been Octopus 4.2 is actually 2018.1. Read more about why we changed.

Improvements

  • When installing Octopus Server and using a Custom Windows Account to run the service, the installation wizard will configure SQL Server correctly so the Custom Windows Account can access the database
  • Steps may now be explicitly configured to run before or after package acquisition
  • The built-in worker, which executes deployment steps and scripts on the Octopus Server, can now be configured to run using a different, lower-privileged user account
  • Fix for infrastructure overview not correctly flowing tag sets from associated tenants
  • Import using the Octopus migrator finds the correct deployment process for scripts from similarly named projects
  • Existing orphaned channels and releases are removed from the database
  • The check to see whether a step template is in use is now much quicker
  • Environments, channels and tags now cannot be deleted if they are used by a disabled step in a project's current process
  • Package notes are fetched in bulk and in async, meaning a release can be deployed without all notes being downloaded first
  • The installed version of Octopus Server is now tracked to help us provide support when data issues occur and is a precursor to raising and event on upgrade

Breaking Changes

Auto machine removal now happens as part of health checks. Minor breaking change API endpoint for machine removal logs is removed and machine removal logs are no longer stored on the Octopus server

Upgrading

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 4.1

Changes in 4.1

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

This December release of Octopus continues the support for Java that was introduced back in 3.17, with the ability to export certificates as Java KeyStores, as well as configuring certificates directly within existing Tomcat 7+, WildFly 10+ and Red Hat JBoss EAP 6+ application servers. This release also allows Maven repositories to be configured as external Octopus feeds, meaning Octopus can now consume Maven artifacts as part of a deployment.

Improvements

  • Maven repositories as external feeds
  • Deployment of Java keystores and configuration of certificates in WildFly, JBoss EAP and Tomcat
  • Directories for task logs, artifacts and the package repository are now store as relative paths

Breaking Changes

There are no breaking changes in this release.

Upgrading

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 4.0

Changes in 4.0

New Features

Breaking Changes

Upgrading

This release contains a few post-install data fixes that may take some time (depending on the size of your DeploymentProcess and User tables), so please ensure you allow time for this to complete. If you are running the watchdog service, please ensure this is stopped during the upgrade.

As always, read the upgrade guide for more details on upgrading to Octopus 4.0.

Octopus 3.17

Changes in 3.17

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

Octopus 3.17 introduces first-class Java support so teams can start deploying their Java apps in a safe, repeatable and reliable way! This release includes support to deploy to Tomcat, RedHat JBOSS EAP and Wildfly application servers and the Octopus built-in repository can now manage Java packages like jar, war, ear and rar files.

Improvements

  • Swagger support for the Octopus API
  • Improved user administration and authentication performance

Breaking Changes

There are no breaking changes in this release.

Upgrading

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 3.16

Changes in 3.16

See our release blog post for more details.

New Features

Octopus 3.16 removes the requirement to install Mono when deploying to Linux and MacOS targets. It does this by using a self-contained .NET Core build of Calamari.

Improvements

  • Support for Okta as an authentication provider
  • ScriptCS has been upgraded to version 0.17.1
  • Resolved issue introduced by Let's Encrypt API change

Breaking Changes

The latest version of ScriptCS has introduced some breaking changes so it's important to review their release notes before upgrading. This only affects projects with script steps written using C#, which are powered by ScriptCS under the hood.

Upgrading

This release contains a post-install data fix that may take a few minutes, depending on the size of your Events table, so please ensure you allow time for this to complete. In our testing with 180,000 records in the EventsTable took ~3 seconds to upgrade.

If you are running the watchdog service, please ensure this is stopped during the upgrade.

All of the usual steps for upgrading Octopus Deploy apply.

Octopus 3.15

Changes in 3.15

New Features

This month, we bring you some much requested improvements to multi-tenant deployments, as well as Octopus Server integration with Let's Encrypt and more!

The way machines, accounts and certificates participate in tenanted-deployments can now be explicitly specified. This includes allowing un-tenanted projects to be deployed to tenanted machines. This has been a long-standing gripe with tenanted deployments which we're very happy to resolve.

Our new integration with Let's Encrypt means you can setup an SSL certificate for your Octopus Portal and it will automatically be renewed when it expires. No need to worry about buying a certificate or manually reconfiguring your server.

Read the full post on the Octopus blog.

Improvements

  • If you're automating the setup of the Octopus Server or Tentacles, you'll be happy to hear that we've put some solid effort into cleaning up our console logging. It will now be much easier to get the information you need without having to do string parsing.
  • Granting Edit permissions now automatically assigns View permissions. It always helps to be able to see what you're changing.

Breaking Changes

  • Console output has changed (for the better!), so we advise testing any automation before upgrading to this version.
  • Octopus.Client version 4.19.0 contains API changes corresponding with the multi-tenant deployment participation change, a minor breaking change for anyone using the MultiTenantDeploymentMode on Project resources via the client.

Upgrading

This release contains a post-install data fix that may take some time (depending on the size of your Events table), so please ensure you allow time for this to complete. If you are running the watchdog service, please ensure this is stopped during the upgrade.

As always, read the upgrade guide for more details on upgrading to Octopus 3.15.

Octopus 3.14

Changes in 3.14

New Features

We are excited to announce the Octopus Deploy plugin for Atlassian Bamboo continuous integration server.

This includes build tasks to make it easy to integrate your build and deployment pipelines.

  • Package applications for deployment
  • Push packages to Octopus
  • Create Octopus releases
  • Deploy Octopus releases

Improvements

Breaking Changes

Octopus Tentacle 3.14.15: Octopus Tentacle 3.14.15 is not backwards compatible with Octopus Server versions less than 3.14.15. This has been fixed as of Octopus Tentacle 3.14.159.

Octopus Server configuration automation: If you are using scripts to automate your Octopus Server installation, please test these scripts with Octopus Server 3.14.x. We have made some changes to simplify configuration of your Octopus Server, but weren't able to maintain 100% backwards compatibility with some of the more obtuse scripts we tested. If you encounter any problems, please look at the scripts generated when you use the Octopus Server wizard.

SQL Database schema upgrades: It may also be worth noting we have adjusted the SQL database schema upgrades so they can be run at the time, and by a user account, which best suits your scenario:

  1. Automatically after the installer completes (new behaviour) - this runs the schema upgrades as the user account who started the installer - falls back to the existing behaviour if the installing user cannot access the SQL database
  2. Automatically during the Octopus Server startup (just like before) - this runs the schema upgrade as the user account who started the Octopus Server
  3. Automatically when executing the Octopus.Server.exe configure command for a setting which is stored in the database (just like before) - this runs the schema upgrade as the user account who started the Octopus Server
  4. Manually by executing the brand new Octopus.Server.exe database --upgrade command - this will run the schema upgrades as the user account who started the command

This may not affect many customers, but enables some advanced scenarios where you can grant limited privileges to the Octopus Server account, and grant schema change privileges to a special account used for installation.

SQL Error 4060 - Cannot open database "OctopusDeploy" requested by the login. The login failed.

If you see an error message like this after the installer completes, you can start the Octopus Server just like before and let it perform the schema upgrades.

Upgrading

Octopus 3.13

Changes in 3.13

New Features

We are excited to announce that Octopus now includes first-class support for Deploying Azure Service Fabric applications.

New deployment steps include:

  • Deploying a Service Fabric App (learn more)
  • Running a Service Fabric SDK PowerShell Script (learn more)

You can also read our guide on Continuous Integration for Service Fabric.

Improvements

  • You can now enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)
  • You can now configure optional lifecycle phases
  • We have improved browser caching of expensive operations like loading the dashboard
  • The message on the deployment overview can now be customised, refer to failing a script with a message
  • You can now edit the state of a task from the task screen by providing the new task state and the reason for the change.
  • You can now configure channel-indexed version templates so you can use a consistent version scheme across channels

Breaking Changes

Please note there is a minor breaking change in this release around the show-configuration command. This will only affect customers who use the show-configuration command for things like automating Octopus Server installation and configuration.

Octopus.Storage.NodeName has been corrected to be Octopus.Server.NodeName.

See this GitHub Issue for more details.
