Resolved issues

  • This release fixes an issue with Facter gem installation errors, which occurred because Facter was pinned to Ruby 2.1.7. The pinned Ruby version is now 2.1. FACT-1918
  • Prior to this release, Facter returned warnings if ip route show output was not in a key-value format. Because this format does not apply to all configurations, Facter no longer returns warnings about it. FACT-1916
  • Previously, the mountpoint fact showed only temporary file systems and physical mounts. Now Facter returns mount points for all mounts on the system. FACT-1910
  • This release adds support for Virtuzzo Linux facts. FACT-1888

Facter 3.13.1

Released 26 March 2019 and shipped with Puppet Platform 6.4.0.

Resolved issues

Facter 3.13.0

Released 26 March 2019 and shipped with Puppet Platform 6.4.3

Resolved issues

  • Previously, Facter incorrectly reported operating system facts (such as and os.release) on Ubuntu systems that did not have the lsb_release executable. Operating system facts are now resolved without relying on lsb_release . FACT-1899
