Hi, community !

We are very proud to announce the availability of a new version of 
Rudder: 2.8.0~beta1.

Major new features include:

  * Configuration for change messages and change requests (validation
    workflow) can now be done inside the web interface (Administration
    -> Settings).
  * Relay servers are now fully operational, and a simple process has
    been put into place to make a regular node into a relay for
    promises, reports and inventories. See
  * HTTP/S is now enabled and configured by default (using a self-signed
  * Change Requests (validation workflow) can now be managed through
    REST API. See
  * Significant performance improvements (up to 30% speed increase) on
    displaying pages with reports in the web interface ("Rules" and
    "Node details" pages).
  * The rudder-agent now uses CFEngine 3.5.

The full ChangeLog is available here: 

Upgrading instructions can be consulted on: 
You can upgrade to Rudder 2.8 from 2.4, 2.6, or 2.7. Our packaging 
process will take all your parameters and configuration into account so 
that you can upgrade with ease.
Note that before upgrading to 2.8, your server has to be at least in 
version 2.4.11, 2.6.8 or 2.7.5 (see this paragraph 
for more details).

This software is in beta status and contains several new features but we 
have tested it and believe it to be free of any critical bugs.
The use on production systems is not encouraged at this time and is at 
your own risk. However, we do encourage testing, and welcome all and any
