Update HAProxy to latest release (2.6.0)


is it possible to share how HAProxy is built and distributed ? i can’t seem to find it in packages with dpkg.
i’m running:

  • DietPi v8.5.1
  • Device model : RPi 4 Model B (aarch64)

which installs
HAProxy version 2.5.1-86b093a 2022/01/11 - https://haproxy.org/
which also is couple of versions behind from that line (2.5.7 is the latest one)

thanks in advance!

Hi, welcome to our community.

Basically we install version 2.5.1 as a fixed version defined on our dietpi-software script

Maybe we should update this to a newer version like 2.6 as available on Index of /download :thinking:

thanks for your quick re:, and for pointing out where is being handled.

The reason i’m down this rabbit hole is because i would like to compile prometheus support in HAProxy, as per (HAProxy Exposes a Prometheus Metrics Endpoint - HAProxy Technologies).

Will try to open a PR.

Also is there an example where user is prompted to select versions when installing software ?
(e.g. latest 2.5 in our case or latest 2.6)

usually we aim to download latest version automatically. In terms of HAProxy it’s not that easy to find out by our script on the given download page. Therefore we use a hardcode version. I guess we will update this for the next release to be version 2.6

I opened PR to change this: DietPi-Software | HAProxy by Joulinar · Pull Request #5550 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub
