Component versions in recent PE releases

These tables show which components are in recent Puppet Enterprise (PE) long-term supported (LTS) releases and the prior LTS releases (2019.8.z). Component version tables for earlier releases are available in the Documentation for other PE versions.

Puppet Enterprise agent and server components

This table shows the components installed on all agent nodes.
Note: Hiera 5 is a backwards-compatible evolution of Hiera, which is built into Puppet 4.9.0 and higher. To provide some backwards-compatible features, it uses the classic Hiera 3.x.x codebase version listed in this table.
