Foreman Community Newsletter (December 2019)


We have plenty of conferences next month and tickets are running out fast! We are also looking for a new community manager, details below :)

1.24 released!

Foreman 1.24 is out with almost 250 features and bug fixes! This will be the last version before Foreman 2.0 so please notice all the deprecation warnings in the release notes.

As ever, many thanks to the contributors to this release - coders, RC testers, documentation writers, and bug/feature reporters. Foreman wouldn’t be what it is without you! If you do find issues with, please do report them!

Katello 3.14 and 3.13.3 are out!

Katello 3.14 was released with an amazing number of 126 features and bug fixes! On the same day 3.13.3 was also released with 2 bug fixes. Huge thanks to all the contributors to this release - as with core, we couldn’t put out these releases without you! Further issues with Katello should be reported, as always.

More Upcoming Events

All Foreman events are available via the forum calendar - hit the Subscribe button (which will give you an ICS link). You can also use the “Add To Calendar” button on specific events if you don’t wish to import the whole thing.

Every few weeks we host a Community Demo to showcase new & interesting developments from the Foreman community. We encourage participation from any member of the community (although you do need a Google account), so if you’ve been working on something cool, please do come show it off.

Past Events

For those of you that have been following our demos live, we have been experiencing technical issues with the live broadcast. This is a result of YouTube dropping the option to use Hangouts on Air. We are working on other live solutions but for now all of our demos are recorded and uploaded right after the time slot we publicize.

If anyone would like to join us live, please reach out and we’ll send out a link we use for the presenters.

Looking for a new Community Manager

Almost a year after the community team started we now see we have enough activity to add a new lead. Pulp community has also grown and are looking for someone dedicated to their community. As a result we are now searching for a new Community Manager for Pulp and Foreman communities. If you know anyone that would be interested see the full details on the forum.
