We are happy to announce the release of Habitat 0.59.0. This is a smaller release, but there are still some good new features and bug fixes, so please read on for all the details. If you just want the binaries, head on over to our downloads page. Thanks again for using Habitat!

Release Notes Highlights:

New Features & Enhancements

  • Add success and failure callbacks for plan builds #5081 (christophermaier)
  • Adds --auth for allowing exports of private packages #5203 (eeyun) hab pkg export docker <origin>/<pkg> should now respect HAB_AUTH_TOKEN appropriately as well as now supporting an --auth argument!

Behavioral Changes

  • [common] Updates due to PackageTarget changes in habitat-sh/core#37. #5311 (fnichol) This is primarily an internal refactoring change that doesn't introduce any new functionality, however it does change one behavior which, while not supported nor expected, is new.

As a Habitat user, if you've managed to manually extract Windows packages on disk on a Linux system alongside your Linux packages (and the case is the same for Linux packages on a Windows system), then this new release of Habitat will skip over any installed packages that are not of the same package target type. In that way your Habitat software will increasingly only care about dealing with packages matching its own compiled-in active package target. Given a more concrete example, an x86_64-linux Habitat CLI only cares about x86_64-linux packages.
