Foreman 1.3 RC3 is ready

Ladies and Gents,

Foreman 1.3 RC3 is now ready for testing. Some bugs have been fixed, please
report any unexpected behavior to us.

Key features:

  • Foreman CLI

  • Installer auto-registers smart-proxy
  • Compute resources and VNC/Spice
  • LDAP filtering
  • Host IP updating
  • New foreman-rake command
  • Plugins as RPM packages
  • API v2 improvements

Full release notes:

==== Packages ====
Package repos are available here: ("rc" component)

Quickstart instructions are here:

Tarballs available here:

==== Installation ====

There is a new installer for Foreman 1.3, it has many new options that are
taken directly from puppet class parameters. Check the help screen or install
with default options directly:

foreman-installer -v

==== Known issues ====

** Proxy registration happens before Apache is started **

You may encounter failure during proxy registration (Foreman_smartproxy puppet
class). In that case if you see 404 error while registering proxy, please
re-run the installer and the error should disappear.

** Installer throws an exception on error **

On Fedoras, when Puppet returns an error, our installer might issue an
exception instead of returning proper exit code. Investigate the log file to
see what happened during puppet run: /var/log/foreman-installer.

==== Reporting issues ====

Please report issues found in Foreman 1.3 in redmine and set "Target
Version" to 1.3 on new bugs.
