We’ve released knife-ec2 0.8.0, now available for gem install on your workstation. This release includes improvements around connectivity options for the bootstrap process, particularly for VPC instances.
THANK YOU! to all of our contributors for your work on this release, and also to everyone who took the time to report defects. We’d like to recognize Gabriel Rosendorf who contributed the –associate-public-ip option to simplify VPC bootstrap scenarios; VPC is getting even greater attention from users these days, so the fix is a timely one.
