The Minishift team is pleased to announce the release of Minishift 1.16.0.
Minishift  is a command-line tool that provisions and manages a
OpenShift cluster. You can run Minishift on GNU/Linux,Microsoft Windows or
In version 1.16.0, we added new features, enhancements and bug fixes
- Local DNS server for offline use (Experimental feature)
Now routes can be accessed offline without dependency on nip.io dns
resolver. See documentation .
- service-catalog, logging and metrics flags needs to be used as part of
E.g. minishift start --extra-clusterup-flags "--service-catalog” .
Note: These flags do not work reliably and also removed from next version
of “oc cluster up” i.e. (v 3.10.0).
You can find a detailed list of issues in the release notes.
For information about getting started, using, and developing Minishift,
see the documentation .
Please try the new release.
The easiest upgrade path is by simply running:
$ minishift update
If you are on v1.15.0 or earlier versions, ‘minishift update’ command will
fail to update to v1.16.0 because of the issue . So you need to download
v1.16.0 from minishift github releases page  manually
to use the released binary.
We are looking forward to your feedback.
