It’s been a few weeks since our last Juju GUI release which means here comes another! This GUI release brings with it the latest beta version of the Juju quickstart plugin…

Juju GUI

Our latest work focuses on making the Juju GUI a more effective day-to-day tool:

Juju Quickstart

The quickstart plugin is nearing feature completion and has a lot of great improvements.

To try out our new releases, existing users can upgrade their GUI charm to cs:precise/juju-gui-81; or run:

juju deploy juju-gui && juju expose juju-gui

…or update the juju-quickstart plugin via apt and run:

juju quickstart

New users on Ubuntu can do the following to get everything installed and start an environment with the GUI running and ready:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install juju-quickstart
## ...edit ~/.juju/environments.yaml file...

Next quickstart release will hopefully remove those last two steps.

New users on other operating systems can’t use Quickstart right now, but the Juju installation instructions can get you started, and..

juju deploy juju-gui && juju expose juju-gui

..can add the GUI to your bootstrapped environment.

Juju GUI Installation documentation can be found here.
