juju-core 1.14.1

A new stable release of Juju, juju-core 1.14.1, is now available.

This release replaces juju-core 1.14.1. It reconciles differences
between juju clients.

Getting Juju

juju-core 1.14.1 is available in Saucy and backported to earlier
series in the following PPA


New and Notable

 * The Microsoft Azure provider is now considered ready for use.
 * lp # 1184786 juju cli now gives a clearer error message when the
deprecated default-image-id key is found.
 * When debugging hooks, juju will set the $PS1 value to
$JUJU_UNIT_NAME:$JUJU_HOOK_NAME %. This results in a shorter and more
useful prompt. Closes ##1212903
 * Juju plugins no longer required the caller to escape all arguments
passed to the plugin.
 * The new command “juju unset <service> <setting1> …” allows a
configuration setting for a service to be removed. Removing the
configuration setting will revert it to the charm default. This is the
first step in solving #1194945.
 * The Windows Azure provider now defines a public storage container
for tools. No configuration changes are required. Closes #1216770.
 * The debug-hooks subcommand is now implemented. Closed issue #1027876
 * The status subcommand now accepts service/unit filters, to limit
output; see “juju help status” for more information. Partially
addresses issue #1121916
 * The juju cli command now returns a better error message when run
against an environment that has not been bootstrapped. Closes issue

Resolved issues

 * The destroy-environment subcommand now requests confirmation before
running, with an option to quietly proceed (-y/--yes). Closed issue
 * The cost calculation for the openstack provider was updated to bias
towards the lowest number of CPU cores when choosing a machine type
matching the provided instance constraints. This closes issue
 * The unit agent now removes stale sockets when restarting. Closes #1212916
 * A bug relating to the formatting of tool versions has been
resolved. This formatting error was only visible when using the -v or
--debug flag. Closes #1216285.
 * lp #1206628 a bug related to the name of an upstart job created for
a service unit has been corrected.
 * lp # 1207230 a bug related specifying the type of local provider
container has been corrected.

Configuration changes

 * none

Known issues

 * The JUJU_ENV environment variable is not being passed down to
plugins. LP #1216254.
