Release Notes for Boomerang v1.0.10
Deploy to an existing Elastic IP
Let's say you've deployed a webserver, but want to deploy a newer version. You want to use the Elastic IP you used for your last deployment, and not create a new one. Now you don't have to! We scan your AWS environment for Elastic IPs and let you assign your new EC2 instances to them. We even make sure you don't accidentally assign two instances to the same EIP. Aren't you glad we're looking out for you?
Enhanced detection of VPC configuration
Speaking of looking out for you, Boomerang now detects whether the VPC in AWS you wish to deploy to has an attached Internet Gateway. If not, it protects you from accidentally trying to attach an Elastic IP where doing so would fail. You can still deploy your VMs without using an Elastic IP, though.
Better detection of instances that cannot be replicated
Further, Boomerang now also detects when your instances in Vmware have Fault Tolerance enabled, or a SCSI controller with Bus Sharing (whether virtual or physical). These configurations prevent snapshots from being taken, so we let you know on the VM selection view when creating your Protection Groups.
Debian 7 and Redhat 7 Support
Hot on the heels of the CentOS 7 support we added last update is support for deploying Debian 7 and Redhat 7 into EC2, thanks to earlier support added by Amazon.
