The return of Perforce summer hours

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend, I know we all are here in the CAT Team with the long awaited return of perforce summer hours. Summer hours mean we get our friday afternoons “back”, to spend some quality time with our family, friends or to just chill out after a hectic first half of the year.

The LVM module

Some big news this week… puppetlabs-lvm is now offically supported! The work to get this module officially supported was quite big, but some of the main bits were:

  • Puppet 8 compatiblity added
  • Dropping of Puppet 6 support
  • Porting acceptance tests over to puppet_litmus

Deferred functions

Sencha and Parvez have been continuing the rollout of deferred functions to our supported modules. This week puppetlabs-sqlserver, puppetlabs-tomcat and puppetlabs-apt have all received updates.

New release of Stdlib

Just a friendly reminder that puppetlabs-stdlib v9.0.0 was released this week, which included alot of housekeeping like the removal, namespacing and deprecation of stdlib functions. So keep an eye out for any unfamiliar failures with your modules, as this may be the culprit.
