In Progress: Salt 2019.2.1 Release Notes

Version 2019.2.1 is an unreleased bugfix release for 2019.2.0. This release is still in progress and has not been released yet.

Change to YAML Renderer

/etc/foo.conf:
  file.managed:
    - source: salt://foo.conf.jinja
    - template: jinja
    - context:
        data: {{ data }}

In 2019.2.0, the above SLS will result in an error message following changes to the YAML renderer that now require the new Jinja filter tojson.

/etc/foo.conf:
  file.managed:
    - source: salt://foo.conf.jinja
    - template: jinja
    - context:
        data: {{ data|tojson }}

In 2019.2.1, we introduce a new configuration option for both the Salt master and Salt minion configurations to be able to support the older YAML renderer. Using the option use_yamlloader_old will allow the YAML renderer to function as before.
