Acquia Cloud 1.89

Sun, 24 Jan 2016

Acquia Cloud includes the following updates and fixes:

Features

  • Get a better view of your site's connection information

    To help you learn more about connection issues that your customers may be experiencing when connecting to your Acquia-hosted websites (or to better understand any issues you may be encountering), the traceroute diagnostic tool is now installed on the Acquia Cloud platform.

  • New environment variable: AH_REALM

    To help you determine the realm in which your website is running, Acquia Cloud now includes a new environment variable: AH_REALM. Your website's realm is a required parameter in calls that you make to the Cloud API.

Changes

  • PHP 5.6 is now the default version for websites created on Acquia Cloud.
  • Both Ruby 1.8 and 1.9 have been removed from the Acquia platform. Scripts that rely on these versions of Ruby may be impacted by this change and must be updated to use Ruby 2.1.
  • Acquia Cloud logs a warning to the PHP error log when the PHP opcache is full.
  • Log entries to the Drupal watchdog log are no longer duplicated in syslog.

Fixed issue

  • An issue with New Relic configuration could cause unneeded database operations, which could affect performance. (CL-11994)

Acquia Cloud 1.88

Thu, 31 Dec 2015

Acquia Cloud includes the following updates and fixes:

Changes

  • The installed version of Drush 8 is now Drush 8.0.1. For more information, see the Drush 8 release notes.
  • Drush 8 is now the default version of Drush on all Acquia Cloud servers. Most Drush scripts and cron jobs will continue to work with Drush 8 without any changes. However, if your cron jobs, Cloud Hooks, or other scripts rely on a different version of Drush, or if you are unsure whether they do or not, you can edit your scripts to specify a Drush version number. Learn more about specifying your Drush version.

Fixed issue

  • On Drupal 8 websites, syslog did not write entries to the Drupal watchdog log. (CL-11489)

Acquia Cloud 1.87

Acquia Cloud 1.87

Mon, 09 Nov 2015

Acquia Cloud includes the following changes and updates:

Changes

  • SSH syntax change

    If you attempt to connect to servers by using SSH and do not specify the environment, Acquia Cloud will display an error message and the connection will fail. For example, using a syntax similar to the following will display a warning message:

    ssh [site]@[server]

    Instead, you should use the following format:

    ssh [site].[env]@[server]

    Communications to your Git or SVN repository are not affected by this syntax change, and you do not need to make any changes to your SSH keys as a result of it.

  • PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.6 have been upgraded

    The version of PHP 5.5 installed on Acquia Cloud is now version 5.5.30 and the version of PHP 5.6 installed on Acquia Cloud is now version 5.6.14. See the PHP release announcement for more information.

  • Removed authorized_keys2 file

    We have removed the authorized_keys2 file from the Acquia Cloud platform. This change is part of Acquia's continuing effort to ensure our products are secure, reliable and scalable. This will have no effect on you unless you manually added public keys to the authorized_keys2 file. Such public keys will no longer be used for SSH authentication. You should instead use the Acquia Cloud interface or Cloud API to add persistent public keys that will be automatically deployed across their instances.

  • Support for larger HTTP headers

    Acquia Cloud now supports HTTP headers with a size up to 16 KB at all levels of the platform stack. This change enhances support for Drupal 8.

  • acquia-files symlink added to .gitignore

    The acquia-files symlink has been added to the default .gitignore file in Git repositories. This will resolve an issue that could cause disabling Live Development mode to fail.

  • Ruby 1.8 and 1.9 will be removed

    In the upcoming Acquia Cloud 1.89 platform release, Acquia will end support for Ruby 1.8 and 1.9 and remove these deprecated versions from the Acquia platform. If your application uses scripts that rely on Ruby 1.8 or 1.9, your application may be impacted by this change. We strongly recommend customers update any Ruby scripts to Ruby 2.1 prior to the Acquia Cloud 1.89 release.

Updates

  • Drush 8 has been upgraded to version 8.0.0-rc2 and Drush 7 has been upgraded to version 7.0.0.
  • AppNeta TraceView has been upgraded to the latest version, which adds support for PHP 5.6.

This is no longer required, and you can install Drupal 8 on Acquia Cloud Professional or Acquia Cloud Free just like any other available Drupal distribution.

Acquia Cloud 1.86

Acquia Cloud 1.86

Fri, 04 Sep 2015

Acquia Cloud includes the following changes:

Changes

  • Acquia Cloud no longer supports Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) ciphersuites. Acquia Cloud has implemented the new default SSL Security Policy supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that excludes Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) ciphersuites. For more information about this change, see Issues relating to DHE ciphersuites changes and Updated ciphers require changes to SSH clients and automated services.
  • If you attempt to connect to servers by using SSH and do not specify the environment, Acquia Cloud will display a warning message. For example, using a syntax similar to the following will display a warning message:

    ssh [site]@[server]

    Instead, you should use the following format:

    ssh [site].[env]@[server]

    Support for the deprecated syntax on the Acquia Cloud platform will be removed in a future release and it will no longer work at that time. Communications to your Git or SVN repository are not affected by this syntax change, and you do not need to make any changes to your SSH keys as a result of it.

  • Acquia Cloud now includes Ruby version 2.1.6.
  • The CSR generator on the Cloud > SSL page now generates CSRs for SHA-2. For more information, see Adding HTTPS (SSL) support to your website.
