  • Prevent timeout from prematurely terminating several Windows system maintenance actions due to a slow system.
  • Fix Azure public cloud detection.
  • Fix an infrequent name resolution crash in DNS black-list resolver.


  • Work around Go 1.11 memory consumption quirks to significantly reduce runtime memory usage.
  • User may now specify a working directory when installing laitos via its Windows PowerShell installer script.
  • All outgoing HTTP/S requests are made more robust with automated retry mechanism.
