- Added additional Replicated features when deploying on Docker Swarm:
- Added the ability to utilize Docker secrets in an application.
- Airgapped installations are now supported.
- Admin commands are now supported.
- Better error messages are displayed in the admin console and logs when a Docker Swarm stack fails to deploy or start.

- The application specific installation scripts will now apply custom branding to all screens, including the screens before the license is uploaded.
- Component names are now a required field. They were strongly recommended before, but it’s not possible to save YAML without component names now.
- When installing using the easy install script, supported operating systems will receive Docker version 17.03.1-ce. Older operating systems will continue to receive older Docker versions as needed.
- Unsupported console settings are hidden from the console settings page in the admin console.
- The public port property in container configurations are now optional. When not specified, Replicated will let Docker choose the best port.
- The initial cluster instance count property can now use Replicated template functions.
- The support bundle will now report if the installation is airgapped.
- Added ability to start snapshots via Replicated CLI.
- Added an admin console dashboard warning if Replicated detects a clock skew higher than 5 minutes on any operator.
- Easy installation script now supports Amazon Linux 2017.03.
- Fixed issue where running admin commands with a
--help flag would not correctly render line breaks.
- Global services in Swarm will no longer prevent Replicated applications from stopping completely.
- Fixed the instructions on the Cluster page of the admin console when running in Airgap mode to show proper instructions.
- The Docker version in the host requirements is now treated as a minimum.
- Added support for SUSE Enterprise Linux 12 in the install scripts.
- Fixed an issue that was preventing preflight checks from being able to determine the number of CPU cores when executed on single core Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services EC2 instances.
- Easy installation script will now correctly tag Replicated component images as current on older versions of Docker.
- Fixed an issue when no files were selected for a multiple file input, an empty directory was created on the server.

- Fixed an issue preventing Replicated from properly parsing the Docker Enterprise Edition version strings.
- Fixed an issue preventing Replicated from properly parsing the Oracle Enterprise Linux version strings.
- Replicated now supports deploying a Swarm (docker-compose v3/3.1 YAML). The following features are supported:
- Added a new easy install script to provision a new Swarm cluster while installing Replicated. Documentation is available.
- Added support for Replicated Automatic Updates when running in Swarm.
- Added support for private images pushed to the Replicated registry. Swarm supports both public images and private images in the Replicated registry with no additional configuration required.

- Added the Replicated Integration API endpoint as a new network, joined to both the Replicated and the application network.
- An new section of our docs was written to help get started with deploying Replicated on Swarm at https://www.replicated.com/docs/packaging-an-application/docker-swarm.
- An example application (Voting app) showing how to deploy a Swarm application on Replicated is at https://www.replicated.com/docs/examples/swarm-votingapp/.

- The ready state default time has changed from 2 seconds to 5 seconds.
- The ready state timeout is configurable in the application YAML.
- Added an autoscale property to the component level in the Replicated scheduler.
- Added a feature to the license page that allows a license to be locked to a specific version of the application. This will prevent updates past this version and will force new installs to start at this version.
- Custom preflight checks can use config files from the application YAML.
- Fixed a missing error message when multiple Replicated Operator containers with the same ID attempt to join the Replicated service. This is relevant for Replicated scheduler only.
- Fixed the “download” button on the snapshot restore page to properly download the recoverable volume.
- Fixed issue where using a AWS generated DNS name in the SSL Hostname input would generate errors.
- The following features were added to Replicated when running in Kubernetes:
- When an application update and an update to Replicated are both available at the same time, it no longer requires the user to click accept, then go back and accept the other. All pending updates will be applied at the same time.
- The install script will warn when Docker is installed with devicemapper in loopback mode. This is not a recommended configuration from Docker. When this warning is displayed, a link to the Docker recommendations is also provided. We also added an argument to skip this check by passing in
bypass-storagedriver-warnings to the install script.
- Preflight checks support parsing the new Docker versioning semantics (YY.MM instead of semver).
- Install scripts parsing the new Docker versioning semantics.
- Removed the requirement that LDAP users belong to at least one group to use in Replicated. This works with services such as Jumpcloud, using the default configuration now.
- Added a heartbeat on the Replicated and Replicated Operator communication channel. This will help reconnect when the network connection is broken and not detected as broken by either endpoint.
- Updated default preflight checks to allow for Docker up to version 1.13.1.
- Updated the base Replicated Docker images from Alpine 3.3 to Alpine 3.4.
- Changed the port-available custom preflight checks to run sequentially instead of in parallel when there are multiple checks.
- Fixed a bug that was causing Replicated to leak one file handle every time the Replicated UI page was loaded.
- Fixed a bug that was causing the cluster page in the Admin Console to show the wrong IP address after a snapshot restore process completed.
- Fixed a bug that caused config files not to be owned by the requested user when a custom owner was specified in the application yaml. This bug affects versions >= 2.5.0.
- Fixed a bug that would cause the incorrect DAEMON_ADDRESS to show up in the /cluster page after it changes.
- Fixed a bug that could cause a Replicated 2.5.0 or later installation running as the replicated user to not have the correct permissions to access a relocated statsd volume.
- Removed a warning from preflight checks when running Docker 1.13.
- Fixed an issue that would cause the Replicated UI container to stop on the “Secure The Console” screen if a hostname is provided without a custom key and cert

replicated_api_version and rely on automatic updates.
- In the support bundle, journalctl are now in reverse so that the newest log lines are never truncated.
- All Replicated on-prem endpoints now require a header of
Content-Type: application/json as an anti-CSRF measure.
- Filesystem permissions for /var/lib/replicated and /var/run/replicated files are changed to be owned by the replicated user, instead of root when running the easy install script.
- Statsd, graphite and premkit now inherit the user account from the Replicated container, instead of always running as root.
- Start mounting
/etc directory instead of several directories under
- Reduced filesystem permissions on
replicated.sock file to

replicated-operator to not restart when an update to Replicated is automatically applied.
- Fixed bug that made proxy settings in the console settings page not apply at runtime.
- Fixed a bug that prevented a snapshot restore process from automatically advance the UI to the preflight checks.
- Due to the listed change for anti-CSRF measures, after updating to 2.5.0, users will have to manually refresh the Replicated Admin Console browser tab.
- Broken image links fixed on “Bypass Browser TLS Warning” page
- Proxy settings updated via On-prem console are now correctly applied after restart
- Re-runs of failed preflight checks will now retry all preflight checks
