Buildah version 1.8 Release Announcement

We’re pleased to announce the release of Buildah version 1.8 which is now available from GitHub for any Linux distro. We are shipping this release on Fedora, RHEL 7, CentOS, openSUSE and Ubuntu in the near future.

The Buildah project has continued to grow over the past several weeks, welcoming several new contributors to the mix. Further updates were made to the performance of pulling and pushing images. The “.dockerignore” file is now usable with the buildah bud command, and the handling of symlinks during the container image process creation and the ways that layers are created has been corrected and tuned for better performance. This release also updates to the latest versions of containers/storage and containers/image giving Buildah improved pulling and pushing performance along with fixing many bugs.

This release comprises changes made for v1.7.1, v1.7.2, v1.7.3 and v1.8.0.

The major highlights for this release are:
