New features and fixes in version
0.1.12 of the Bluemix CLI Developer Plug-in.
Use of Create without a Bluemix Account
bx dev create command now supports use without a Bluemix account. This unauthenticated use provides access to code templates as with the authenticated use of the command. What is different, is that an unauthenticated user will not be able to add services to the code template that is downloaded.
Enhanced OS User Support in the Container
The support for using the current user of the host operating system in the Docker tools container is enhanced to more reliably match the OS user with the container user. These lines must be added to the tools Dockerfile and replace those detailed in the release note for version 0.1.5:
RUN if [ $bx_dev_user != "root" ]; then useradd -ms /bin/bash -u $bx_dev_userid $bx_dev_user; fi
cli-config.yml needs this additional option:
version : 0.0.3
More Tracing Options
deploy commands now offer
--trace for additional debug information.
Windows Long Path Support
Windows now supports paths for the source code project that are longer than 255 characters.
Prevent Potential Hangs due to Docker Engine Unresponsiveness
If the Docker Engine does not respond, the commands will no longer attempt the operation indefinitely, but will return to the command prompt.
Starter List Filtering
The list of code starters is better sanitized to remove those not intended for use with this plug-in.
Miscellaneous Message Improvements
Various fixes to the trace and normal console output of all commands to provide better clarity and problem determination.
