Change logs for Rudder 4.0.* versions

Rudder 4.0 is currently the old-latest version of Rudder.

This page provides a summary of changes for each version. Previous beta and rc versions are listed below for convenience.

Main new features in Rudder 4.0:

  • Policy can be applied in "Audit mode", which only checks configuration and does not enforce it, on a global, per-node or per-directive basis
  • Global redesign of web interface
  • Files from shared folder can be selected using a file browser
  • Agents can be remotely started using API (wrapper for "rudder remote run" on the CLI)
  • Settings API
  • Rudder agent status command
  • Performance improved (compliance, policy generation are faster)
  • New file copy protocol

A blog post explaining these features is available here: https://www.normation.com/en/blog/2016/11/11/rudder-4-0/

We also recommend using the Rudder Vagrant config if you want a quick and easy way to get an installation for testing.
