Stratis 2.2.0 Release Notes2020-09-29
mulhern, Stratis Team
Stratis 2.2.0 now places Stratis filesystem symlinks in
/stratis. Stratis creates and maintains the symlinks by means
of udev rules, rather than directly via stratisd as previously.
/stratis directory is neither created nor used by stratisd 2.2.0.
This release places management of the terminal setting for interactive encryption-key entry in stratisd rather than in stratis-cli.
This release also includes enhancements to the stratisd D-Bus interface, various bug fixes, and a change in the stratisd CLI specification for log levels.
This release creates and maintains Stratis filesystem symlinks in
/dev/stratis by means of udev rules. It includes a small Rust script,
stratis_uuids_to_names which is invoked by the Stratis udev rule which
sets the Stratis filesystem symlinks.
In the case where stratisd is updated in place, some filesystem symlinks
may remain in
/stratis. This release includes a shell script,
stratis_migrate_symlinks.sh which may be used to clean up the
directory and ensure that the correct symlinks exist in
script removes the
/stratis directory once it has completed without error.
The shell script relies on a small Rust script,
which is included with this version of stratisd.
This release also extends the D-Bus interface in a few ways:
- It sends
org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager.InterfacesRemovedsignals on the D-Bus whenever a D-Bus object is added to or removed from the D-Bus interface.
- It adds a new D-Bus property,
PhysicalPath, for the
org.storage.stratis2.blockdev.r2interface. This property is principally useful for encrypted Stratis block devices; it identifies the block device on which the Stratis LUKS2 metadata resides.
- It adds a new key,
LockedPools, to the
org.storage.stratis2.FetchProperties.r2interface for objects that implement the
org.storage.stratis2.Managerinterface. This key returns a D-Bus object that maps the UUIDs of locked pools to their corresponding key descriptions.
Please consult the D-Bus API Reference for the precise D-Bus specification.
This release allows the user to specify their preferred log level more
directly and succinctly with the
--log-level CLI option.
This release includes management of terminal settings for interactive encryption-key entry.
This release includes some unsupported scripts which may be built from the
source distribution but are not intended to be released as part of any
package. These scripts depend on the
extras feature in
This release also includes a number of minor bug fixes.
This release requires stratisd 2.2.0. Some commands have been updated to make use of the new stratisd D-Bus interfaces.
This release drops management of terminal settings for interactive encryption-key entry; management of terminal settings is now handled in stratisd 2.2.0.
We would like to thank our external contributors carzacc and poizen18 for their work on bash tab-completion.
