HashiCorp Packer 1.5 brings two major new features and a long list of smaller improvements. The most exciting changes are that Packer now supports basic HCL2 templates, and we now can share some special information between builders and provisioners, like host IP and port for the build instance. We hope that having access to these details will help simplify your templates and your operations efforts.

We are excited to announce Azure Resource Manager (ARM) support for HashiCorp’s core infrastructure configuration and provisioning tools, Packer and Terraform. Now all of HashiCorp's open source tools - Vagrant, Packer, Terraform, Consul, Nomad, Vault, Otto - support best practices for application delivery on Microsoft Azure.
HashiCorp tools focus on workflows, not technologies. Users of our tools can apply the same workflow for infrastructure provisioning, application deployment, application maintenance, and security across all their infrastructure — both on-premises and in the cloud. As a result, enterprises save time on infrastructure management so they can commit more resources towards solving business-critical needs.
Read on to learn more about the HashiCorp workflow for infrastructure automation on Microsoft Azure.

We've released Packer 0.8. Packer is a tool for building virtual machine images, containers, and other deployable artifacts.
Packer 0.7 has been out for almost a year (with minor releases since then), and we decided it was time for a major release. Packer 0.8 is an immensely large release, with over a dozen new features. A big thanks to the community who had over 100 pull requests, as well as to HashiCorp employees Chris Bednarski and Clint Shryock who both dedicated time to this release.
Packer 0.8 is available immediately for download and is already running within Atlas.
