2.0 Release Notes

The new features in Teleport 2.0 are:

Additional improvements:

Teleport Enterprise

In addition to these improvements to the open source distribution of Teleport, we are releasing a commercial version of Teleport, called Teleport Enterprise. This commercial release will include features that make it easier for large organizations to manage Teleport, including:

Upgrading

Teleport 2.0 is meant to be a drop-in replacement for the 1.x series. However, it is always recommended to make a backup of the cluster state prior to replacing the teleport binary with a new version. The cluster state is located in /var/lib/teleport directory for filesystem-based deployments. Users of the etcd backend should use etcdctl backup command to accomplish this.

Security Audit Status

We are working with an independent auditor to conduct a security audit of Teleport v2.0 and Teleport Enterprise and they will be publishing the resulting audit in April 2017. The last audit we conducted was just prior to the release of v1.0 so we believe it is prudent to conduct another audit at this time.
