Apache Mesos 1.6.1 Released

Apache Mesos 1.6.1 is now available for download. This release includes important bug fixes and improvements to 1.6.0; if you’re considering using Mesos 1.6, it’s recommended that you use 1.6.1. The following notable fixes are included:

  • MESOS-3790 - ZooKeeper connection should retry on EAI_NONAME.
  • MESOS-8830 - Agent gc on old slave sandboxes could empty persistent volume data
  • MESOS-8871 - Agent may fail to recover if the agent dies before image store cache checkpointed.
  • MESOS-8904 - Master crash when removing quota.
  • MESOS-8936 - Implement a Random Sorter for offer allocations.
  • MESOS-8945 - Master check failure due to CHECK_SOME(providerId).
  • MESOS-8963 - Executor crash trying to print container ID.
  • MESOS-8980 - mesos-slave can deadlock with docker pull.
  • MESOS-8986 - slave.available() in the allocator is expensive and drags down allocation performance.
  • MESOS-8987 - Master asks agent to shutdown upon auth errors.
  • MESOS-9002 - GCC 8.1 build failure in os::Fork::Tree.
  • MESOS-9024 - Mesos master segfaults with stack overflow under load.
  • MESOS-9025 - The container which joins CNI network and has checkpoint enabled will be mistakenly destroyed by agent.

Full release notes are available in the release CHANGELOG.


Rolling upgrades from a Mesos 1.6.0 cluster to Mesos 1.6.1 are straightforward. Please refer to the upgrade guide for detailed information on upgrading to Mesos 1.6.1 from other versions.
