  •  08 Feb 2004 15:36

    Release Notes: A bug in the installation process that makes jail unusable with some applications (such as ftp and ssh) was fixed. The right path is now added to the /etc/shells file. The documentation and the Web site have been updated.

    •  29 Oct 2001 20:39

      Release Notes: Full support for Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, and IRIX, redesigned Perl scripts around a new modular architecture (with lots of bugfixes), a new debug layer, ability to set up all the configuration options from the Makefile for an easier install jail, and other minor updates.

      •  13 Aug 2001 10:57

        Release Notes: This release supports arguments, so all the argument-based bugs have been fixed. Also, some programs that depend on these arguments now work (e.g. SSH/SCP). New terminal handling code has been added. Terminal device files (tty and pts/XX) are now automatically created on startup.

        •  26 Jul 2001 14:12

          Release Notes: All the Perl scripts tested in version 1.6 were erroneously run without the -w flag, which caused many bugs to go undetected. These bugs have been corrected and fixed. The argument-passing code in the strace module was fixed, allowing the programs to accept their parameters. This fixes the vim problem, and the addjailsw.pl script should no longer hang. Some other minor bugs have been fixed.

          •  25 Jul 2001 17:27

            Release Notes: The mkenv.sh and addjailuser.sh have been fully rewritten in Perl, so they should be more portable. This should also fix some bugs that arise when the chroot environment is built. A new application, called addjailsw.pl, has been written to allow insertion of software into the chrooted environment. This provides more flexibility. Now you can pass arguments to the programs, which allows programs to exit nicely in the strace phase. Some documentation improvements were made and some examples were added.

            I had is working on Solaris 8 in just a little while. True, it took a little to get it just right, there were some minor problems on Sol8 and the Doc could be ironed out a bit, but it works quite well.

            I'd recommend chroot Jail.

            Crappy code, crappy documentation, doesn't work worth a crap on Solaris 8. Other than that it's great.

            Excellent
            I've been using this in a production environment with excellent results!

            Has an automated script that does a pretty good job guessing and installing library dependencies, software, and user accounts to any number of jails on your system.

            Very stable; this is obviously quality work.
