Today we release the first of our Foreman 1.10 release candidates, and
ask for your help in testing new features and changes from the past
All help is appreciated to ensure our dot-zero release is solid, either
installing a new instance or upgrading a test server.
···================= A new button to rebuild DNS, DHCP and TFTP configs has been added to the UI and API, which will help in cases where records have been lost due to server rebuilds or other issues.
More detailed host statuses are available, with an extensible
mechanism for plugins to be able to add to the green/yellow/red status
shown on the host list and dashboard.
Lots of host and host group cloning enhancements and fixes are present
in this release, so virtual machine details, Puppet class associations
and more are copied correctly, among other improvements.
Creating hosts with host groups, but changing and unsetting certain
inherited attributes has become easier with new “inherit” buttons.
Similarly, passwords already saved can be removed now.
The smart proxy DNS module has been overhauled, and is now extensible.
New PowerDNS and Route 53 plugins are available already!
Parameter management has seen a few improvements, particularly in the
Puppet class edit form. The host and host group parameters tabs have
improved tooltips and layout fixes to improve readability.
A full list of the changes in Foreman 1.10 is in our release notes, and
we’ll continue documenting the new features in the coming weeks:
