We are happy announce the release of Bcfg2 1.3.1. It is available for download at:

ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/bcfg

1.3.1 is a bug fix release that primarily addresses several bugs discovered in the utilities for upgrading from Bcfg2 1.2.x.

New features and bug fixes include:

  • Yum groups are now supported without the native yum libraries in use.
  • Better support for client passwords with special characters (especially @ and /) in them
  • Error messages improved in several places
  • Much better coverage for migrate_perms_to_mode.py (SSLCA, SSHbase, #1146, nested tags)
  • Fixed import in migrate_info.py
  • bcfg2-admin init bugs fixed (#1145, creation of repo directory in certain cases, enabling of all plugins by default)
  • Workaround for #1140
  • Debian packaging fixes for the new reporting system
  • Fixed infinite loop condition with a misnamed Path entry
  • Fixed some layout issues on the web interface
  • Documentation improvements

Thanks to Jason Kincl, who contributed the yum group support code, and to everyone on IRC and elsewhere who helped us find and squash these bugs.
