Release 2014_040 (2014-08-18)

Packages

  • Reflect source URL changes on bitbucket in local ebuilds (#13577).
  • Ignore GLSA 201408-02 / freetype (#13567) as the update does not fit properly and the attack vector is neglible in our platform.

Configuration

  • Prepare partitioning for the upcoming installation of GRUB2 (#13421).
  • Automatically create a support ticket when restoring a VM from backup so that we reliably notify customers about it. (#12348)

Monitoring

  • Improve physical disk health monitoring once again for better accuracy in detecting soon-to-be-failing disks.
