Build-Pipelines for Operating System Artifacts

Release of osbuild 21

We are happy to announce version 21 of osbuild. This release adds support for running on Fedora 34. Furthermore, internal errors during container setup are now properly reported. And lastly, a lot of work has been done to improve the code readability.

Below you can find the official changelog from the osbuild-21 sources. All users are recommended to upgrade!

  • The way that output of modules is communicated to osbuild was re-factored in a way that now makes it possible to also capture and log the output of the container runtime, i.e. bubblewrap. This should prove useful to track down errors where the runner can not be executed.

  • runners: support for Fedora 34 was added

  • A lot of internal re-factoring was done, to make the code nicer and easier to read. For example the way objects are exported in the pipeline is now unified. Additionally, a dedicated API is used to fetch the arguments in the modules, instead of relying on standard input.
