Highlights

The team has put together a new interactive demo to show new users what they can do with habitat! Check it out on our website https://www.habitat.sh/tutorials/ and let us know what you think in our slack channel!

The Supervisor has a couple important behavioral updates that fix some issues users were seeing post launcher being introduced:

  • Fix Supervisor re-attaching to processes after update & service update #2969
  • Don’t remove pidfile in Supervisor struct’s deconstructor #2974
  • Auto-updating Supervisor causes Supervisor to not reconnect to processes #2961

And, there is a new way to tag your service groups to programmatically understand what application and environment they are serving in your architecture: simply append the new Application.Environment tag to the service group for easier management and organization. #2959, #2956
