  • Add pod creation and start times to rkt list and rkt status (#2030). See rkt list and rkt status documentation.

  • The DNS configuration can now be passed to the pod via the command line (#2040). See DNS support documentation.

  • Errors are now structured, allowing for better control of the output (#1937). See Error & Output for how a developer should use it.

  • All output now uses the new log package in pkg/log to provide a more clean and consistent output format and more helpful debug output (#1937).

  • Added configuration for stage1 image. Users can drop a configuration file to /etc/rkt/stage1.d (or to stage1.d in the user configuration directory) to tell rkt to use a different stage1 image name, version and location instead of build-time defaults (#1977).

  • Replaced the --stage1-image flag with a new set of flags. --stage1-url, --stage-path, --stage1-name do the usual fetching from remote if the image does not exist in the store. --stage1-hash takes the stage1 image directly from the store. --stage1-from-dir works together with the default stage1 images directory and is described in the next point (#1977).

  • Added default stage1 images directory. User can use the newly added --stage1-from-dir parameter to avoid typing the full path. --stage1-from-dir behaves like --stage1-path (#1977).

  • Removed the deprecated --insecure-skip-verify flag (#2068).

  • Fetched keys are no longer automatically trusted by default, unless --trust-keys-from-https is used. Additionally, newly fetched keys have to be explicitly trusted with rkt trust if a previous key was trusted for the same image prefix (#2033).

  • Use NAT loopback to make ports forwarded in pods accessible from localhost (#1256).

  • Show a clearer error message when unprivileged users execute commands that require root privileges (#2081).

  • Add a rkt tmpfiles configuration file to make the creation of the rkt data directory on first boot easier (#2088).

  • Remove rkt install command. It was replaced with a script (#2101.

Bug 修复

  • Fix regression when authenticating to v2 Docker registries (#2008).

  • Don't link to libacl, but dlopen it (#1963). This means that rkt will not crash if libacl is not present on the host, but it will just print a warning.

  • Only suppress diagnostic messages, not error messages in stage1 (#2111).


  • Trusted Platform Module logging (TPM) is now enabled by default (#1815). This ensures that rkt benefits from security features by default. See rkt's Build Configuration documentation.

  • Added long descriptions to all rkt commands (#2098).


  • The --stage1-image flag was removed. Scripts using it should be updated to use one of --stage1-url, --stage1-path, --stage1-name, --stage1-hash or --stage1-from-dir

  • All uses of the deprecated --insecure-skip-verify flag should be replaced with the --insecure-options flag which allows user to selectively disable security features.

  • The rkt install command was removed in favor of the dist/scripts/ script.

Note for packagers

With this release, rkt RPM/dpkg packages should have the following updates:

  • Pass --enable-tpm=no to configure script, if rkt should not use TPM.

  • Use the --with-default-stage1-images-directory configure flag, if the default is not acceptable and install the built stage1 images there.

  • Distributions using systemd: install the new file dist/init/systemd/tmpfiles.d/rkt.conf in /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/rkt.conf and then run systemd-tmpfiles --create rkt.conf. This can replace running rkt install to set the correct ownership and permissions.
