  • MESOS-9305 - Create cgoup recursively to workaround systemd deleting cgroups_root.
  • MESOS-9317 - Some master endpoints do not handle failed authorization properly.
  • MESOS-9332 - Nested container should run as the same user of its parent container by default.
  • MESOS-9334 - Container stuck at ISOLATING state due to libevent poll never returns.
  • MESOS-9362 - Test CgroupsIsolatorTest.ROOT_CGROUPS_CreateRecursively is flaky.
  • MESOS-9411 - Validation of JWT tokens using HS256 hashing algorithm is not thread safe.
  • MESOS-9492 - Persist CNI working directory across reboot.
  • MESOS-9507 - Agent could not recover due to empty docker volume checkpointed files.
  • MESOS-9518 - CNI_NETNS should not be set for orphan containers that do not have network namespace.
