Fedora 8 Update: func-0.23-1.fc8

Fedora Update Notification
2008-10-24 22:46:39

Name        : func
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.23
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/func/
Summary     : Remote management framework
Description :

func is a remote api for mangement, configuration, and monitoring of systems.

Update Information:

func 0.23 -1  - job_id's for async work are now more human readable and
meaningful  - Improvements in the overlord side groups api. Including
adding/remove  lists of hosts to the groups configuration, querying the list of
groups.  - Updates to yumcmd minion module to allow specifying packages to
update  in more detail, including patterns. Also return the list of packages
updated  on a update call  instead of the previously useless "True"  - Several
refactoring changes to remove code that was duplicated between  func and
certmaster.  - Added "func-transmit". func-transmit is a utility that allows for
access to  the func overlord api via the command line. It reads formatted data
via stdin  and outputs formatted data via stdout. Currently yaml and json are
supported.  This should make it easy for other language bindings to access the
full power  of func. See https://fedorahosted.org/func/wiki/FuncTransmit for
more details.  - Using "func-transmit" there are now language bindings for java
and groovy  - func now supports func delegation, allowing for a tiered
deployment of func  minions and overlords. This is useful for adapting to
network topologies, or  for improving performance on large deployments.  See
https://fedorahosted.org/func/wiki/DelegationModule  - command.run now supports
setting env variables  - Copyfile module works better for large files  - Most
modules now export method args and api calling information though the
module.get_method_args argument  see
https://fedorahosted.org/func/wiki/ExportMethodArgs  - Tons of changes in the
funcweb app, including usage of the get_method_args info  - Added support for
"local" Overlord() api modules.  So overlord modules can implement  abstractions
for the overlord api usage. copyfile is a good example.  - Modules for overlord
cmd_modules and the modules used for local api are now loaded  as plugins, so
they can just be dropped into place.  - Merges of the Google Summer of Code
students (Krzysztof A. Adamski and Denis Kurov)  code into the tree (well, the
last little bits of it anyway, most was already merged)
