Change logs for Rudder 6.0

Rudder 6.0 is currently a development version of Rudder.

This page provides a summary of changes for each version. Previous beta and rc versions are listed below for convenience.

Warning: The following features are now provided as plugins and no more available as part of default Rudder installation starting from 5.0:

  • LDAP-based authentication

  • Relay servers

  • Changes validation workflow (change requests)

If you were using them, upgrade will disable them and you will have to install the plugin. Read the plugins page on our website for more information.

The initial RUDDER model consisting of a single software block which includes all features, thus imposing a greater and greater complexity on all of our users, has reached its limits. We have now reached a sufficient understanding of the domain, its challenges, and the way RUDDER is used, to make us realize that this all-in-one model is not, or is no longer, the best suited.

Installing, upgrading and testing

We also recommend using the Rudder Vagrant config if you want a quick and easy way to get an installation for testing.
