Pulpcore 3.0.1 is the first bugfix release and contains some significant
fixes. See the release notes for all the details.

Pulpcore 3.0.1 contains only bugfixes and no breaking changes for either
users or plugin developers. This means all existing released plugins should
be able to upgrade onto pulpcore==3.0.1 without issue.

## New Installations

If you are using a new install, you can use the ansible-installer directly
and you'll receive 3.0.1. The quick start guides below are useful for that.

* pulp_rpm installation --
* pulp_container installation --
* pulp_file installation --

## Updating from 3.0.0

For safety reasons, if you rerun the installer exactly as you did before
you won't be updated. There are a various scenarios a user may want to
rerun the installer, e.g. settings changes, fixing drift, etc, and you
wouldn't want to unexpectedly update.

Two new boolean variables are added to the installer, `upgrade` (under
`pulp_install_plugins`) and `pulp_upgrade`. The former will update the
plugin it is specified under; the latter will update pulpcore itself.

To update you should:

1. Download the latest installer from https://github.com/pulp/ansible-pulp
2. Set the `pulp_upgrade` variable to `True`
3. Run the installer

Note: Later on, additional variables will be added to differentiate updates
vs upgrades.

## Quickstart

Pulp_rpm offers a quickstart guide (link below) which uses pulplift (link
below) to create a not-long-living installation just to try it out. These
same instructions can be adapted to the other plugins also.


## Migrating from Pulp2 -> Pulp3

A Pulp 2 -> Pulp 3 migration tool is in-progress (
https://github.com/pulp/pulp-2to3-migration ), but not fully available yet.
Until it is, users are recommended to **not** install Pulp3 on top of their
Pulp2 system until it is available.

This tool is progressing well. We hope this tool will be available within a
month or two to migrate the plugin types that are released.
