Release 2022_007 (2022-03-02)¶
[NixOS 21.05] Apache on LAMP servers will be restarted.
NixOS 21.05 platform¶
Work around a suspected Apache/PHP bug regarding dynamic library loading and static thread local storage by restarting Apache instead of reloading gracefully (PL-130372).
We now use the black code formatter for our platform Python code.

NixOS 21.11 platform¶
The 21.11 platform version is now ready for non-production machines. We plan to upgrade customer staging VMs from 21.05 to 21.11 in a few weeks. Main development will be done on 21.11 from now on.
Significant breaking changes:
HAproxy doesn’t support
log localhostanymore, use
Postgresql 9.6 is end-of-life and has been removed.
PHP 5.6 has been EOL for a long time and has been removed.
OpenSSH 8.8 default settings break connections to older SSH implementations as ssh-rsa host keys and ssh-rsa public keys that were signed with SHA-1 are disabled now. They can be re-enabled temporarily, if needed.
iptables now uses nf_tables backend. This may lead to problems when mixing legacy and new firewall rules.
Notable package updates:
bash now defaults to major version 5.
python3 is now python39
