Pulp 2.11.0 Release Candidate 2 is now available, and can be downloaded from
the 2.11 beta repositories:


The new feature for pulp-manage-db has failed upgrade testing and has been removed from this
release.  This feature is outlined in the links below:

New features for Pulp 2.11 include more improvements to RPM syncing, the ability to pull older
trees with OSTree, incremental publish with Docker and RPM, and the ability to upload DRPMS.
Several bugs were also fixed; all the details can be found later in this announcement.

More information about these new features can be found in the release notes:
Docker 2.2 and OSTree 1.2 release notes coming soon.

Try out the new features, and let us know how they work for you!


The 2.11 beta repositories are included in the pulp repo files:
https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/pulp/pulp/fedora-pulp.repo for fedora 23 & 24
https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/pulp/pulp/rhel-pulp.repo for RHEL 6 & 7

upgrade path, with migrations, to get to 2.11:

> $ sudo systemctl stop httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat
> $ sudo yum upgrade
> $ sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db
> $ sudo systemctl start httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat
