Katello 3.7 (Blonde Ale) Release Notes

For the full release notes, see the Changelog.


New Red Hat Repositories & Subscriptions Pages

Completely redesigned with an eye toward usability and functionality.

New Upstream Subscriptions API

For users with Red Hat content we now provide an API for managing subscriptions against existing manifests. Check the API documentation for details.

Content Views

Composite content views can be configured to auto-publish when one of its components is changed.

Client Tooling

Zypper and DNF plugins have been added to support errata applicability similar to Yum clients

Backup and Restore Utilities

We are beginning to adopt Foreman Maintain for Katello. Our first endeavor has been to utilize it for backup and restore capabilities.

The primary goals of this change are to:

  • Centralize system operations in a single tool
  • Support remote databases
  • Support new Mongo versions (3.4)

katello-backup and katello-restore are completely removed so please be sure to update any cron jobs or scripts using them.
