Engine Yard Release Notes- October 2017


Engine Yard Stack Release Notes for October 9th, 2017

Minor: Engine Yard Gentoo 2016 stack upgrade

Action: You apply the following changes the next time you click the Upgrade button for your Engine Yard Gentoo 2016 environment.

Note: For clarity, since we now have 2 Gentoo stacks, we refer to this stack as the Engine Yard Gentoo 2016 stack. You can access it by using the Stack select field in the Environment UI: stable-v5-3.0.32

It's best practice to upgrade your Engine Yard Gentoo 2016 (stable-v5) stack regularly for the latest security and product updates. This week's updates:

NOTE: Our chef recipes do not restart Passenger, as doing this in a chef run can result in a simultaneous restart across all application instances, causing downtime. However, a restart is needed to run the newer Passenger version. To restart Passenger, please run "sudo monit restart passenger_APPNAME_8000" on all app instances. We recommend doing this on a staggered basis to avoid downtime.
