Rock-ons changelog

We have a lot to announce today as we’ve made a substantial dent in our rock-on backlog. We indeed had a lot of updates to make, in addition to adding new rock-ons; we can thus announce the following changes to our rock-ons catalog:

  • 4 Additions
  • 4 Removals

New rock-ons

  • Jellyfin (Github link): Thanks to @StephenBrown2 for sharing his new rock-on for Jellyfin. Jellyfin started as an open-source fork of the Emby media streamer project and is now a fully-fledged and rapidly improving media streamer comparable to Plex and Emby. This rock-on uses the image provided by Linuxserver.io, and is thus compatible with both the x86_64 and aarch64/arm64 architectures. Thanks a lot @StephenBrown2 for your contribution!

  • Logitech Media Server (Github link): @Hooverdan has been a key contributor in this update back and this is one of their many contributions! Our Logitech Squeezebox rock-on was outdated and needed a big update, so @Hooverdan stepped up to the ask and created a new rock-on using an up-to-date and maintained image. This rock-on is thus a replacement for our now-deprecated Logitech Squeezebox rock-on (see below). Thanks again @Hooverdan!

  • SickChill (Github link): Thanks again to @Hooverdan for yet another contribution. SickChill is the successor to our SickRage rock-on that is now deprecated, and is an automatic video library manager for TV shows. Our Sickrage rock-on was outdated as the project has been deprecated, so @Hooverdan stepped up to the ask and created a new rock-on for its alternative.

  • Watchtower official (Github link): Another important contribution by @Hooverdan. Watchtower allows for the automatic update of docker containers and can thus be used to update any rock-on of interest. Note that as for any automated update, this should inherently be considered with precaution. Our previous rock-on was outdated as the image used has been deprecated, so @Hooverdan stepped up to the ask and created a new rock-on using the official image.

Removal

  • Sickbeard(Github link): As detailed in the corresponding Github issue, the Sickbeard project is no longer maintained and the image that we were using has not been updated in 3 years. As multiple replacements and alternatives exist, we thus decided to deprecate our Sickbeard rock-on and expand alternatives instead (see Sonarr and SickChill rock-ons).

  • Logitech Squeezebox(Github link): As detailed in the corresponding Github issue, our rock-on for the Logitech Squeezebox has now been outdated and needed to be replaced with a much newer image. Thanks to @Hooverdan, we now have a replacement: Logitech Media Server rock-on. We can thus now deprecate the out-of-date Logitech Squeezebox.

  • Watchtower(Github link): As detailed in the corresponding Github issue, our rock-on for Watchtower was using an outdated and unmaintained image. As we now have a replacement using the Watchtower official image thanks to @Hooverdan, we can thus now deprecate the out-of-date Watchtower.

  • Sickrage(Github link): As detailed in the corresponding Github issue, the Sickrage project is no longer maintained. As we now have an alternative (SickChill) thanks to @Hooverdan, we can thus now deprecate the out-of-date Sickrage rock-on.

As always, clicking the “Update” button in the top right of the “Rock-ons” page is necessary for your system to pull these changes and any rock-on that is installed will not be removed.

Despite all these changes, we still have more to come. Visit the rock-on registry repository and its issue tracker as well as pending pull requests for more information.
