Release 2021_014 (2021-04-26)


  • [NixOS 20.09] LAMP-based services will be restarted.

  • [NixOS 20.09] Gitlab will be restarted and be unavailable for some minutes.

NixOS 20.09 platform

  • fc-agent: pre-build updates which are scheduled to run in a maintenance window. Stopped/started/restarted/reloaded services are now reported correctly in maintenance mails and the UI. This also helps to find build errors earlier (#PL-120275).

  • fc-agent: add a notice to the maintenance annoncement when kernel updates will schedule a VM reboot. Estimated time for an update is increased to 10 minutes because some services may take minutes to restart (#PL-129798).

  • Vagrant: Set mode for service user dirs (/srv/s-*) to 755 like on a regular VM (#PL-129791).

  • Gitlab: update to 13.8.8 security release (#PL-129795).

  • Major improvements of our LAMP role (#PL-129755).

    • We now provide PHP 5.6 (legacy), 7.3 (default) and PHP 7.4 (optional)

    • Tideways integration is automatically enabled/disabled if an API key is provided.

    • We are switching from mpm_event to mpm_prefork as we have seen too many issues with threading and rather prefer a stable service.

    • We added more test coverage to ensure future stability.

    • Added BCMath as a default extension.
