Spacewalk 1.0 RELEASED! AWESOME!

Almost two years ago, I was involved in the open sourcing effort of Spacewalk. While I’ve moved on to other projects since then, Spacewalk still holds a special place in my heart.

Yesterday the Spacewalk team announced the release of version 1.0! This is an exciting milestone. Here’s a summary of some of the things you’ll find in 1.0.

Features & Enhancements

  • RHN Client code dropped HAL in favor of python-ugdev
  • New script to rename Spacewalk hostname
  • RHN Proxy migrated to mod_wsgi
  • The Spacewalk java stack uses Tomcat 6 on Fedora 12

Known Issues

  • Provider GPG key is sometimes not recognized causing packages to show up as ‘unknown Provider’
  • Still no PostgreSQL support. We need HELP to move this forward.

Congrats to the Spacewalk team for reaching this important milestone.
