Major Changes

  • Refactoring of nodejs-1.3.x image
    • This version is no longer based off of previous Node.js images and is now based off of the Base SmartMachine image (base-1.8.1).
    • This version no longer includes git-deploy hooks. If you use this image and plan to deploy your Node.js applications through Git, you will need to use a PaaS such as nodejitsu. You can use the 1.3.3 image if you still prefer to manage your application deployment through Git. However, you will need to manage updates to Node.js on your own. See this for help with updating Node.js on the 1.3.3 image.
    • This version no longer includes a node-service running by default. You will need to define a node SMF manifest. You can do that using Manifold

  • MongoDB 2.2.0 installed by default
  • Quickbackup 2.6 installed by default
