New Portainer CE 2.0.1 Release

Please note that this blog is now out of date. For a full list of Portainer's current features and functionality please go to our Portainer Features page

We've just released Portainer CE 2.0.1. This is a 'dot' release, so largely bug fixes and a couple of minor new features thrown in for good measure. There are 27 updates in this release that address some of the common bug fix requests we've had since we released 2.0.0 in September.

Bug Fix Highlights
1. Unable to retrieve configs when a config is a binary file
You can now upload binary files and present them as a config in either Kubernetes or Docker.

2. Kubernetes cannot create resource pool with "owner" in labels contains special characters.
If your Portainer username contains an @ sign, you are now able to use Portainer's Kubernetes features.

3. Edge compute - add support for Windows OS for Edge Agent
The edge compute agent now supports Windows Docker hosts.
New Feature Highlights

1. Expose pods without workload as applications
This provides an aerial view of pods that are just being deployed as naked or bare pods.

2. Request confirmation upon volume removal
Deleting a volume means deleting data; this is a risky exercise that requires caution and care; we now request confirmation when attempting to delete a volume to avoid accidental deletion.

Release Cadence
Major releases will occur every two months, and will contain both new features and bug fixes, some of which may introduce breaking changes. Regardless, every month we will be releasing a new version of Portainer CE. Release will be targeted on or around the second to last day of each month.

For Portainer Business (PB), we need a slightly longer release cycle due to the increased depth of testing we have committed to our business users. There will be a major release once every 4 months, and a “dot” release midway between the major releases. The dot releases for BE will ONLY include bug fixes; there will be NO new features added in the mid-releases. 

 Any questions, drop me a line.
