Stork 0.12.0, October 14th, 2020, Release Notes
Welcome to the Stork 0.12.0 release. This is a development release of the Stork dashboard.
The changes introduced in this version are:
BIND 9 fix for multiple addresses. Previous Stork agents had problems parsing BIND 9 configurations that had more than one address specified in their allow lists. This is now fixed. #411
Events viewer. Previous Stork agents were able to display the last 15 events in a small panel in the dashboard. This was useful, but very basic. The capability has been now significantly expanded: the event viewer widget on the dashboard now has a paging mechanism, so earlier/later pages can be viewed, and there's an entirely new full page events viewer. #357
Breadcrumbs navigation. Some users have reported that navigating around the Stork UI can be confusing. The newly added breadcrumbs navigation should make it more obvious and the navigation should be more intuitive. #337
Verbose mode for DB migration. Stork does not publish any DB schema; it provides a
stork-db-migratetool that performs the migration. This is more flexible, as over time there will be cases when the schema and data migration require some processing and cannot be easily done in plain SQL. However, we received a report that on certain systems the schema migration failed and it was difficult to diagnose the problem.
stork-db-migratenow allow users to migrate up and down to specific schema versions and enable logging all queries. #366
We now have a solution for two issues reported: the ability to handle large configurations with thousands of subnets (#398) and no more confusion for Stork if the Kea IP address changed (#409). Both have candidate solutions that are at various stages of review, and they are expected to be part of the 0.13 release, expected next month.

We ask users of this software to please let us know how it worked for you and what operating system you tested on.

Please open tickets in the Stork GitLab project for bugs, documentation omissions and errors, and enhancement requests. We want to hear from you even if everything worked.
Professional support for Stork will become available once it reaches the 1.0 milestone. Existing ISC customers that consider themselves very early adopters may get involved in the development process, including roadmap, features planning, and early testing, but the software maturity level does not constitute a typical professional service before the 1.0 milestone.
Free best-effort support is provided by our user community via a mailing list. Information on all public email lists is available at https://www.isc.org/mailinglists/. If you have any comments or questions about working with Stork, please share them to the stork-users list (https://lists.isc.org/mailman/listinfo/stork-users).
