vip-quickstart latest release notes
0.9.2 v0.9.2: Fix users

We no longer have a weird vagrant user outside of Vagrant.


Fixes submodule paths.

Some of the submodules we use have been renamed. This should correct them.


We need to start somewhere.

We need to start tagging releases for the installer. There are still a few things left in the v1.0 milestone, so we'll call this v0.9.
