We are pleased to announce the availability of Hashicorp Nomad 0.9.2.
Nomad is a flexible workload orchestrator that can be used to easily deploy both containerized and legacy applications across multiple regions or cloud providers. Nomad is easy to operate and scale, and integrates seamlessly with HashiCorp Consul for service discovery and HashiCorp Vault for secrets management.
Nomad 0.9.2 addresses a privilege escalation vulnerability that enables the exec task driver to run with full Linux capabilities such that processes can escalate to run as the root user. This vulnerability exists in Nomad versions 0.9 and 0.9.1. Other task drivers including the Docker task driver are unaffected. See the official announcement for more details.
Nomad 0.9.2 builds upon the work done in Nomad 0.9, with features that enhance the debuggability of running tasks, as well as allocation lifecycle management commands and deployment enhancements. Nomad 0.9.2 also includes an Enterprise feature - preemption capabilities for service and batch jobs.
The new features in Nomad 0.9.2 include:
auto promoteflag that causes deployments to automatically promote themselves when all canaries become healthy.
This release includes a number of bug fixes as well as improvements to the Web UI, the system scheduler, the CLI, and other Nomad components. The CHANGELOG provides a full list of Nomad 0.9 features, enhancements, and bug fixes.
