This week marks a particularly special milestone for etcd2. Beginning today, etcd2 will be available in the CoreOS Linux Stable channel. This means that everyone will now be able to take advantage of etcd2, which we launched earlier this year.

Today we are discussing the new fault-injecting, functional testing framework built to test etcd, which can deploy a cluster, inject failures, and check the cluster for correctness continuously.

Today we are pleased to announce that the first CoreOS image to have an etcd v2.0 release is now available in CoreOS alpha channel. etcd v2.0 marks a milestone in the evolution of etcd and includes many new features and improvements over etcd 0.4 including:

“What makes a cluster a cluster?” - Ask that question of 10 different engineers and you’ll get 10 different answers. Some look at it from a hardware perspective, some see it as a particular set of cloud technologies, and some say it’s the protocols exchanging information on the network.

Today etcd hit v2.0.0, our first major stable release.

etcd 2.0

We are pleased to announce the first release candidate

The etcd team has been focused on making it easier to scale and manage larger clusters, and is happy to announce a release with features to help: etcd v0.4.0. This release is an important step in our road to 1.0. (If you are new to etcd, our getting started guide can give you a quick overview of the project).

Over the last few months the extent of community involvement and adoption of etcd has surpassed all our expectations. We wanted to take this opportunity to share with the wider community our plan for the ongoing development of etcd.

We want etcd to be a stable base for you to build distributed systems that are resilient to failures. Users of etcd should find things consistent and predictable, and client libraries should not need to be updated for years. In short, we need to get to 1.0, and this is clearly not where etcd is today.

The ambassador pattern is a novel way to deploy sets of containers that are configured at runtime via the Docker Links feature.

Today I'd like to introduce our latest project, fleet. fleet builds on etcd and systemd to provide a distributed, fault-tolerant platform for deploying applications on CoreOS clusters.
