Release 1.6.0

Date: 2013-08-02

Rundeck 1.6.0 introduces two major changes and a number of bug fixes and enhancements:

  • Logging system plugins.
    • New facility allows integration with other systems, like Logstash, and improves Rundeck’s behavior in a clustered cloud environment by allowing you to have log files synched to a shared storage more easily.
  • Refreshed GUI
    • Did you know it hasn’t really been changed since Rundeck 1.0?! We fixed some of the usability complaints about the old GUI, and our goal was to address usability without having to change functionality, but some of our future GUI enhancement ideas snuck in.

Notable issues:
