just before the beautiful shine of the new has fully disappeared from
RAUC 1.0, it is now time to bring out a new release: v1.1.

This release comes with some remarkable memory leakage fixes you should
not miss.

As new features, we now have full support for reading GRUB2
status like we had for the other bootloader implementations already.

A minor feature but quite useful for debugging certificate issues is the
new ability to use --dump-cert without requiring successful verification.

Especially system integrators may like the support for using multiple
keyring certificates from a directory. This will avoid conflicts when
installing multiple certificates from different build system packages.

As a result of various community feedback and discussion, this release
adds a bunch of documentation updates targeting potential
misunderstandings and explains some unclear topics in more detail.

Find a detailed list on what was added, changed and fixed since v1.0 below.

We would like to say thank you to everyone who tested for v1.1,
reported issues or contributed new features!

Best regards and fail-safe updating,

The RAUC Team

  * Added full GRUB2 support, including status and primary slot readback
(by Vitaly Ogoltsov and Beralt Meppelink)
  * Allow passing a slot's name via commandline instead of it's bootname
  * Show each slot's name in ``Booted from`` line of ``rauc status`` to

ext4 slot after copying the image.
  * Allow dumping the signer certificate (``--dump-cert``) without
  * Allow specifying a keyring directory with multiple files to support
non-conflicting installations of certificates from different packages
(by Evan Edstrom)
  * Add a bootloader option ``efi-use-bootnext`` (only valid when
bootloader is 'efi') to disable usage of BootNext for marking slots primary.
  * Support setting a system variant in the ``system-info`` handler via
  * D-Bus "mountpoint" property now also exports external mount point
  * Made slot state, compatible and variant available as environment
variables for slot hooks
  * Made system variant variable available as an environment variable
for bundle hooks
