Roadmap & Releases

See also: How to upgrade your deployment

This document is about our releases of Juju, that is, the juju CLI client and the Juju agents.

Starting with Juju 3.4.0, we will release a new minor version (the ‘x’ of 3.x) every 3 months, on the last Thursday of January, April, July, and October of every year. Thus, Juju 3.4.0 will be released on the last Thursday of January 2024. Juju 3.5.0 will follow on the last Thursday of April. And so on.

When we release a new major version, the latest minor version of the previous release will become an LTS (Long Term Support) release.

Starting with Juju 3.3, our minor releases will be supported with bug fixes for a period of 6 months from their release date, and a further 3 months of security fixes. LTS releases will receive security fixes for 5 years.

There are two specific exceptions to the general rule:

  • In recognition of our earlier commitment to a longer support period for Juju 3.1, we will extend support of 3.1 for security-only patches (for high/critical security issues) until the final release of 3 which will become the LTS.
  • We will release Juju 4.0 Beta 2024. This will be functionally usable, but without all of the polish that we want to have for a final 4.0 release.

The rest of this document gives detailed information about each release.

Removal of Juju GUI

Juju GUI is no longer deployed and the --no-gui flag was dropped from juju bootstrap. The Juju Dashboard replaces the GUI and is deployed using the juju-dashboard charm.

Windows charms no longer supported

Windows charms are no longer supported.

Bionic and earlier workloads no longer supported

Only workloads on focal and later are supported.

No longer create default model on bootstrap

Running juju bootstrap no longer creates a default model. After bootstrap you can use add-model to create a new model to host your workloads.

add-k8s helpers for aks, gke, eks

The Juju add-k8s command no longer supports the options “–aks”, “–eks”, “–gke” for interactive k8s cloud registration. The strict snap cannot execute the external binaries needed to enable this functionality. The options may be added back in a future update.

Note: it’s still possible to register AKS, GKE, or EKS clusters by passing the relevant kube config to add-k8s directly.

Deprecated traditional kubernetes charms

Traditional kubernetes charms using the pod-spec charm style are deprecated in favor of newer sidecar kubernetes charms.

From juju 3.0, pod-spec charms are pinned to Ubuntu 20.04 (focal) as the base until their removal in a future major version of juju.

Rackspace and Cloudsigma providers no longer supported

Rackspace and Cloudsigma providers are no longer supported

What’s New

Juju Dashboard replaces Juju GUI

The Juju Dashboard replaces the GUI; it is deployed via the juju-dashboard charm, which needs to be integrated with the controller application in the controller model.

juju bootstrap
juju switch controller
juju deploy juju-dashboard
juju integrate controller juju-dashboard
juju expose juju-dashboard

After the juju-dashboard application shows as active, run the dashboard command:

juju dashboard

Note: the error message which appears if the dashboard is not yet ready needs to be fixed. (https://bugs.launchpad.net/juju/+bug/1994953)

Actions

The client side actions UX has been significantly revamped. See the doc here: https://juju.is/docs/olm/manage-actions

To understand the changes coming from 2.9 or earlier, see the post here: https://discourse.charmhub.io/t/juju-actions-opt-in-to-new-behaviour-from-juju-2-8/2255

Secrets

It is now possible for charms to create and share secrets across relation data. This avoids the need for sensitive content to be exposed in plain text. The feature is most relevant to charm authors rather than end users, since how charms use secrets is an internal implementation detail for how workloads are configured and managed. Nonetheless, end users can inspect secrets created by deployed charms:

https://juju.is/docs/olm/secret

https://juju.is/docs/olm/manage-secrets

Charm authors can learn how to use secrets in their charms:

https://juju.is/docs/sdk/add-a-secret-to-a-charm

https://juju.is/docs/sdk/secret-events

Juju controller application

The controller model has a Juju controller application deployed at bootstrap. This application currently provides integration endpoints for the Juju dashboard charm. Future work will support integration with the COS stack and others.

MongoDB server-side transactions now default

Since the move to mongo 4.4 in juju 2.9, juju now uses server-side transactions.

:juju: Juju 2.9.25 - 24 Feb 2022

This release is significant because it transitions to using the juju-db snap from the 4.4/stable channel (running mongodb 4.4.11 at the time of writing) for newly bootstrapped controllers. NB the juu-db snap is not used if the default series is changed from focal to an earlier vrsion. Existing controllers which are upgraded to this release will not change the mongo currently in use.

:hammer_and_wrench: Fixes:

  • Juju trust not working for K8s charm(LP)
  • cannot migration nor upgrade without manual intervention for a machine after a container is removed- (LP1960235 )
    • On machines exhibiting the above behavior, the agents will show as lost during the upgrade, you must kill the jujud process on the machine. This allow it to be restarted and continue the upgrade.
    • Also seen on machine’s having an LXD container which haven’t been removed.
  • destroy model fails if there’s a relation to offered application (LP)
  • Sidecar charm get stuck if PodSpec charm with same name was deployed previously (LP)
  • 2.9.22 regression: local charm paths resolved wrongly in bundles (LP)
  • juju migrate failing with manual machines, verifying controller instance(LP)
  • Offer permissions are not migrated (LP)
  • destroy model fails if there’s a relation to offered application(LP)

See the full list in the milestone page.

:juju: Juju 2.9.8 - 13 Jul 2021

This release introduces support for bootstrapping and deploying workloads to Equinix cloud. To try out the new provider:

  • Run juju update-public-clouds --client to ensure that provider API endpoint list is up to date.
  • Add a credential for the equinix cloud (juju add-credential equinix). You will need to specify your equinix project ID and provide an API key. You can use the equinix console to look up your project ID and generate API tokens.
  • Select a metro area and bootstrap a new controller. For example to bootstrap to the Amsterdam data-center you may run the following command: juju bootstrap equinix/am.

Caveats:

  • Due to substrate limitations, the equinix provider does not implement support for firewalls. As a result, workloads deployed to machines under the same project ID can reach each other even across Juju models.
  • Deployed machines are always assigned both a public and a private IP address. This means that any deployed charms are implicitly exposed and proper access control mechanisms need to be implemented to prevent unauthorized access to the deployed workloads.

This release also introduces logging labels which will help with the aggregation of logs via a label rather than a namespace.

juju model-config "logging-config='#http=TRACE'"

The above will turn on HTTP loggers to trace. This is a new UX feature to help with debugging, it’s not been full worked through Juju yet and might be subject to change.

:hammer_and_wrench: Fixes:

  • Juju fails to deploy mysql-k8s charm with its image resource (LP)
  • Juju 2.9 failing to create ClusterRoleBinding (LP)
  • Juju interprets caas-image-repo containing port number incorrectly (LP)

See the full list in the milestone page.

:juju: Juju 2.9.7 - 06 Jul 2021

:hammer_and_wrench: Fixes:

  • Juju upgrade 2.9 controller from local branch fails with wrong namespace. (LP)
  • Unit network data not populated on peer relations in sidecar charms (LP)
  • A juju refresh --switch ./local fails for metadata v1 charm (LP)
  • A migrated CaaS model will be left in the cluster after model destroyed (LP)
  • Unable to deploy postgresql-k8s charm from charmhub (LP)
  • Unable to deploy bundle with sidecar and pod_spec charms (LP)
  • IP address sometimes not set or incorrect on pebble_ready event (LP)
  • Improve juju ssh on k8s poor ux (LP)
  • Support encrypted EBS volumes for bootstrapping controllers on AWS (LP)
  • Document and support charmcraft’s bundle.yaml fields (LP)
  • install hook run after juju upgrade-model 2.7.8 to 2.9.4 (LP)
  • controller fails to bring up jujud machine (LP)
  • The juju ssh --proxy command is not working on aws when targeting containers with FAN addresses (LP)
  • The juju resources revision date format uses year-date-month format instead of year-month-date (LP)
  • Using juju config with empty values erroneously resets since 2.9 (LP)

If I’m not mistaken there is no announcement on the latest releases on Launchpad yet. Would be nice to have it there, too.
