Release Notes: Satisfying-Cactus
The Satisfying-Cactus (5.0) release includes R-CORD, E-CORD and M-CORD profiles. Detailed information about these profiles can be found in the Service Profile Guide. The following summarizes the new features.
Platform and Build System
Added support for dynamically loading new services and service profiles into a running system. R-CORD and E-CORD services converted to use new dynamic loading mechanism, but M-CORD still uses
Refactored build to isolate profile-specific information (e.g., models, TOSCA templates). R-CORD, M-CORD, and E-CORD converted to use refactoring.
Added support for logging and diagnostics. See the Logging and Diagnostics section of the guide for more information.
Added new scenarios to build:
preppedpod: Installs a CORD POD without MaaS on pre-prepared systems, which can run the R-CORD test suite.
