Ignition 8.1.15 release

Inductive Automation released Ignition 8.1.15 on March 1, 2022, and as we typically do we at coatl.dev we updated our ignition formula.

Additionally we did some refactoring, and simplified the post_install step of our formula. So instead of manually uncompressing the Java runtime and upgrading the ignition.conf file we now rely on two additional commands from the ignition executable; chekruntimes and runupgrader. Both of them were introduced on an earlier release and we now make use of both.

To install or update to the latest Ignition version from our tap, please refer to the instructions found here, which apply to all versions.

You may also find more information about Ignition on the official announcement, the release notes, or the docs.

Ignition 8.0 deprecation

We have kept the ignition@8.0 formula in case there are users out there who still rely on this version, but it appears Inductive Automation has abandoned development on it.

With Ignition 8.0.17 being the latest version having a released date of November 12, 2020, we decided to put a deprecation warning for ignition@8.0 dated 2020-11-12.

Upcoming releases

We are expecting version 7.9.19 to be released any time now, so expect us to update our ignition@7.9 formula soon.

Help wanted

We believe that there may be some Linux users who rely on Homebrew as another option for installing packages which also happen to be Ignition users. If you fit into that description, we are looking for some help on making ignition available for Linux.

Feel free to chime in on our ignition for Linux discussion.

Thanks for reading!
