  • v3.0.0 Changes

    July 19, 2019

    After quite some time we proudly announce cobbler version 3.0.0.
    This version is mostly adjusting code to python3.
    โœ… Thanks to @SchoolGuy it got elementary test enhancements and re-writes.
    This is the reason why we have Travis and a nicely working continuous integration process running on github for a while.

    ๐Ÿš€ SuMa (SuSE Manager) 4.0 makes use of this cobbler release. So be sure that this one gets important bug fixes and backports from time to time.

    ๐Ÿš€ While there have been adoptions for other distributions as well, some might have waited for a python3 compatible release. So here it is.
    ๐Ÿš€ As soon as we got some bigger major fixes there might soon be another release. Work in progress is for example:

    • ๐Ÿ“š Documentation (consolidating and updating github and source documention, fix dead links/text)
    • Python Module/Import structure (shuffle code around to have a proper python module structure)
    • ๐Ÿ— Spread latest python3 cobbler version and help distros building with latest python3 package dependencies if
      not yet done.
