What’s new in 3.5.0

Breaking changes

  • As announced in version 3.4.4, stack and license commands are now removed from the CLI.
    As a result, scenario files must be updated since a lot of parameters are now obsolete and a few remains mandatory (see BCD Scenario reference)

  • For the same reason, openssh-client package was removed from the docker controller image.
    You can re-add this package if needed by building a custom image of the controller.
