Foreman 1.21.0-RC3 has been released


#1

Foreman 1.21.0-RC3 is now available for testing, big thanks to everyone who contributed and especially to @ekohl who has been handling most of the technical work of building this release.

RC1 and RC2 had several significant issues that were found during initial sanity checks, so we decided to skip them and release RC3 right away.

There is still a known issue preventing most katello pages from properly rendering, but other plugins should work properly with RC3. We expect RC4 to be released next week to address this and any other significant issues found in the meantime.

Please help by testing and getting it release-ready, and let us know if you hit any issue when upgrading or installing the release candidate either here or on the redmine issue tracker.
