Hello Packer Community,

The Packer team is excited to announce the release of Packer 1.8.1.

This release contains a number of fixes to features released in 1.8.0 including a much needed fix to the module which implements client authentication support for signature algorithms based on SHA-2. For a full list of changes please take a look at the Packer CHANGELOG.

Notable Features:

  • A new HTTP data source that retrieves information from a HTTP GET request to be used within a Packer build.

Notable Fixes:

  • Plugins installed via the packer plugins install command will now automatically load for builds using JSON templates or HCL2 templates without a required_plugins block. 
  • All bundled plugins have been updated to their latest release to address any open issues pertaining to the legacy SSH key algorithm fix.
  • The "expected a single file, got multiple" error introduced in v1.8.0 when downloading OVA files has been resolved.
As always thank you for your continued support and contributions. 

The Packer team
