Juju Quickstart 1.5.0

The UI Engineering Team is proud to announce the 1.5.0 release of Juju Quickstart!
Juju Quickstart helps both new and experienced users to quickly start Juju and the Juju GUI,
whether they’ve never installed Juju or they have an existing Juju environment running.

The new release includes the following new features:

  • Initial support for the manual provider type.
    Juju Quickstart can now be used to configure Juju, set up
    the Juju GUI and run an environment using manual provisioning.
  • Better integration with MAAS (Bare Metal):
    improved the way node addresses are retrieved, also handling the
    case where the MAAS DNS server is not being used on
    the local machine where Juju Quickstart is running.
    Also automatically detect a logged in MAAS API, so that
    it is possible to use the stored credentials to create and
    bootstrap a MAAS environment without user intervention.
  • Improve the way the application detects the Juju environment
    is already running. This results in a faster, more reliable and
    less expensive execution of Juju Quickstart when invoked
    on an already bootstrapped environment.
  • The interactive session environment editing view now
    shows required fields first, so that users can more
    quickly create/change their Juju environments’ definitions.
  • Interactive session no longer hides errors under certain
  • Also note that, starting from this release, Juju Quickstart
    no longer supports Juju < 1.18

To install and start Juju Quickstart, run these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install juju-quickstart
juju-quickstart [-i]
