     5This page describes the development goals, release status and new features for the 0.9.6 release. 
     6 
     7== Development Goals == 
     8 
     9 * piling more modes (in an organized way) into bcfg2-admin, putting more of the ad hoc stuff from the tools directory into the hands of package-only users 
     10 * streamlining acquisition/analysis  
     11 * Continuous mode for the client -- where only previously conforming entries are changed 
     12 * Centralized per-entry decision support (for building automatic reconfiguration processes), both rule-based and point-in-time 
     13 * Cleaning up the revision control support 
     14   * Support for server-initiated writes (clients.xml/ssh keys/bcfg2-admin pull data) 
     15   * Plugin infrastructure for other revision ctl systems 
     16 * Modular data source support -- adding the ability to build a set of data inputs for configuration generation interfacing with: 
     17   * ldap 
     18   * mysql 
     19   * files 
     20   * PODIM  
     21 
     22== Release Status == 
     23 
     24 * 0.9.6pre3 (10/10/08) 
     25 
     26== New Features == 
     27 
     28 * Client- and group-specific TCheetah and TGenshi templates 
     29 * Client- and group-specific SGenshi structures 
     30 * Client- and group-specific Probes 
     31 * Multi-fingerprint support in the client 
     32 * Rework bcfg2-admin (and implement unattended bcfg2-admin pull) 
     33 * [wiki:NewDynamicReports#Newreportsscriptin0.9.6pre2andlater bcfg2-reports] 
     34 * Editor Plugin: support cfengine style file edits without a centralized set of information 
     35 * DBStats Plugin: Load statistics directly into the database from the server 
     36 * Dynamic group information available in bcfg2-info 
     37 * BB plugin: a network provisioning plugin that replaces the stock metadata plugin 
     38 * Query mode for bcfg2-admin 
     39 * Preliminary FreeBSD rc support 
     40 * Pkgmgr optimizations (results in 10X speedup in startup on python2.4+) 
     41 * Unicode support 
     42 * Client locking support: prevent multiple client runs at the same time 
     43 * Add fs event debugging in bcfg2-info 
     44 * Support for direct file logging (ie bcfg2 -o /tmp/bcfg2.log)
