1.2.0 is (going to be) the first VyOS release based on Debian Jessie. Cleaning up the legacy that kept VyOS from working on newer systems properly took a lot of work, but thanks to the efforts of Kim Hagen, Alex Harpin, and Tom Jepp, it has been done.


Base system

  • The base system is now, as said before, Debian Jessie
  • Hypervisor detection has been reworked, based on hvinfo that is cross-platform and supports more hypervisors (e.g. bhyve)
  • Updated packages:

Config backend


User-defined commits hook can now be stored in /config directory so that they survive reboots (/config/scripts/commit/pre-hooks.d and /config/scripts/commit/post-hooks.d, respectively). They automatically run with vyattacfg GID to avoid issues with permissions.

Multiple issues related to leftover data from UnionFS-FUSE mounts were resolved.

Config scripts can now be written in Python via a wrapper library.
