PuppetConf has started and the news are rolling in. A Summary.

  • Puppet Server: new clojure/jruby/jvm based puppet master to replace all ruby puppet masters. Seems to bring already decent perf improvements and the jvm is a much better runtime than MRI ever was. I for one welcome our new java overlords.
  • Puppet Test Pilot: PL invites the community for enhanced direct-to-dev feedback. I’ve subscribed.
  • “Puppet Approved”: a term mentioned in Puppet Lab’s notes about day one, which applies to modules that are regularily tested by PL and follow certain standards. More details can be found at the puppet forge.

The rest of stuff is already consisely wrapped up in the posts above, so I won’t duplicate that. I’ll revisit this once the complete videos are rolling in.
