I'm proud to announce the 0.5.2 release of my FreeBSD jail administration Drupal module. This is a maintenance release that fixes a few bugs and enhances the user interface. This will be the last release prior to a major overhaul I'm working on. The tarball is here and the project lives on GitHub. A PR has been submitted to FreeBSD to update my www/drupal7-jailadmin port.
Today is a great day for releasing a new version of my Jailadmin Drupal module. Version 0.4 is a milestone release. I'm really proud of this release and excited to see its usage. I've added support for IPv6, epair and bridge aliases, and custom routes. You can download the new version directly from GitHub. If you're interested in helping out, please fork the project and send me either patch files or pull requests.
I've been working hard adding features and refining my FreeBSD vnet jail administration Drupal 7 module. I recently released version 0.2 of the project. It now supports using vnet to bridge directly to the physical NIC. This is an exciting release and I now consider the project usable. I will be releasing version 0.2.1 within the next day or two, which includes a few bug fixes and enhancements to existing features.
I make heavy use of vnet jails in FreeBSD at work. Due to FreeBSD's rc.d system not supporting vnet jails well, I opted to create a little command-line PHP project to make administration of jails easier. Though the tool was useful, it lacked in flexibility and usability. After learning how to write modules for Drupal, I opted to rewrite my jail administration project as a Drupal module. Though I wouldn't recommend running this project in a production environment, it's very useful for development environments. I use different jails to keep different development projects organized.
