We are happy to announce that Netplan 0.106.1 is available for download on Ubuntu Mantic Minotaur and Debian testing.
This release includes some improvements in our documentation and CI infrastructure and a number of bug fixes.
What’s new in Netplan 0.106.1?
- New Netplan tutorial. A tutorial for beginners on how to get started with Netplan was included in our main documentation. It’s intended to help newcomers to get familiar with Netplan and guide the reader through the basics to start using it. The new tutorial can be found in this link https://netplan.readthedocs.io/en/0.106.1/tutorial/
- Netplan How-tos. The how-tos section was restructured and expanded with more use cases. The how-tos can be found in this link https://netplan.readthedocs.io/en/0.106.1/howto/
- Manual pages. All Netplan subcommands now have their own man page. The online version of the man pages can be found in this link https://netplan.readthedocs.io/en/0.106.1/cli/
- Desktop integration how-to. In Ubuntu Mantic (23.10), Netplan and Network Manager work in tandem to generate network configuration. This integration is described in more details here https://netplan.readthedocs.io/en/0.106.1/netplan-everywhere/
- canonical/setup-lxd GitHub action. The autopkgtest environment creation was standardized to use Canonical’s setup-lxd action.
- Snapd integrations tests with spread. A new test set for the Snapd integration with Netplan was introduced using the spread tool.
- DBus. A number of DBus integration tests were added to the Debian package.
- Keyfile parser improvements. Our Network Manager keyfile parser (the capability of loading Network Manager configuration to Netplan YAML) was expanded to support all the types of tunnels supported by Netplan.
- Ubuntu’s Code of Conduct 2.0 was added to the code repository.
- We added a new bash autocompletion script with all the Netplan’s subcommands.
- The new release package was synchronized with Debian.
- Keyfile parser. This release contains a couple of important fixes for the NetworkManager integration stability: 1) adding WPA enterprise connections is now working fine and new test cases were added to the package; 2) a WireGuard peer with allowed IPs that don’t include the network prefix are now accepted.
- Netplan parser. A number of memory leaks and stability issues were fixed.
- DBus. An issue related to how directory paths are built in the Netplan DBus service was causing issues in the Snapd integration and was fixed.
