These are the new features, resolved issues, and deprecations in this version of Facter.

Facter 3.12.3

Released 15 January 2019. This is a bug-fix release that shipped with Puppet Platform 6.0.5

Resolved issues

  • Facter now returns the correct path to system32 on 64-bit systems where the sysnative folder has been created manually. FACT-1900

Facter 3.12.2

Released 1 November 2018. This is a bug-fix release that shipped with Puppet Platform 6.0.4

Resolved issues

  • Previously, if you had multiple custom versions of a built-in fact, and only those with a weight of 0 could resolve, Facter used those zero-weighted values. Now, if only zero-weighted custom facts resolve, Facter uses built-in fact values instead. (FACT-1873)

Facter 3.12.1

Released 25 October 2018 and shipped with Puppet Platform 6.0.3.

Resolved issues

  • Facter now correctly distinguishes between Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. (FACT-1889

Facter 3.12.0

Released 18 September 2018 and shipped with Puppet Platform 6.0.0.

New features

  • Key type is now included as part of the facts for each SSH key. (FACT-1377)

Resolved issues

  • Systems relying entirely on systemd-networkd for DHCP management do not use dhclient. This checks the DHCP leases directory of systemd-networkd (/run/systemd/netif/leases) in addition to the lease files of dhclient when attempting to identify DHCP servers. (FACT-1851)

  • Facter no longer checks for missing dmidecode and does not report a warning when it’s missing on POWER Linux machines. (FACT-1765 and FACT-1763)
