New release 0.9.0

  • Core and containers migrated to use Node.js 8.10.0.
  • HTTP service improved.
  • REST Core API added.
  • Native debian manifest file requires now systemd_unit_file field.
  • ssh connections to containers removed due to security reasons.
  • New seappexec bash command added for executing commands inside containers: seappexec <unique_name> <arguments>. This mitigates the absence of the ssh connections. Use Docker's commands if this is not sufficient for the task at hand.
  • The applog bash command renamed to seapplog.
  • Service connection and disconnection listener (Service, SpaceifyApplication classes) callbacks are called with unique_name in the arguments. Old: (connectionId, service_name, isSecure), new: (connectionId, service_name, isSecure, unique_name) → new function declaration is backward compatible.
  • Iptables security rules implemented.

New release 0.5.0

Notice! This update brings major changes to Spaceify.

  • Migrated to use Node.js 5.10.1
  • 'HTTP code is 404 …' error while installing packages is now fixed.
  • The service_type field in requires_services object in spaceify.manifest is now obsolete.
  • Basic security model functionality implemented.
  • status and version command added to spm: status shows running status of applications and spacelets, version shows version information of the Spaceify edge.
  • Improved connection classes.
  • JavaScript API improved.
  • Several fixes: core, application manager, web server, log file handling, DNS server, installation process.

The JavaScript API has gone through changes that break the functionality of applications made for the previous versions. The changes were made to make the API consistent to use on the edge and the web pages. See the API and examples sections for reference how to update your applications and spacelets to this version. The API is now easier to use and threshold to start making applications is lower than ever.
