juju-core 1.20.8

A new proposed stable release of Juju, juju-core 1.20.8, is now available.
This release may replace stable 1.20.7 after a period of evaluation. If
no issues are raised about this version, it will released on or after
September 24, 2014.

Getting Juju

juju-core 1.20.8 is available for utopic and backported to earlier
series in the following PPA:


The proposed packages in this archive use the proposed simple-streams.
You must configure the 'tools-metadata-url' option in your
environments.yaml to use the matching juju tools.

    tools-metadata-url: https://streams.canonical.com/juju/proposed/tools

This ensures a clean separation between the stable tools and the proposed
tools. Production environments based on stable juju cannot accidentally
upgrade to a proposed release. The 'tools-metadata-url' option must be set
to clearly state the environment is for evaluating proposed versions.

If you have a environment dedicated to evaluating upgrades of juju you can
switch your testing environment to use the proposed streams like so:

    juju set-env

This change may take hours to propagate. You can upgrade when the proposed url
is shown to be in the env.

     juju get-env tools-metadata-url
