(R)?ex the friendly automation framework



The Rex-1.7.0 release is now available on CPAN.

Deprecating official Rex packages

As part of our efforts to simplify maintenance around RexOps projects, we have decided to stop building Rex packages on our side. We recommend relying on OS packages maintained by the various distributions in their respective upstream repositories, or to install Rex from CPAN.

Post-migration updates & clean-up

Over the course of the past weeks many clean-ups have been done, reaping the benefits provided by our new Statocles-based site:

New site engine for rexify.org

After months of work on a new site backend, we reached the MVP today for our site to be switched over to a new engine: from now on, our site will be maintained using the static site generator Statocles.

Release notes for 1.3.3

This is a bugfix release, upgrade is recommended for all users.

Sometimes it's not that easy to categorize changes (and it's also not our main goal :), so some of them are halfway between the corners of the bugfix-enhancement-new feature triangle. We thought none of them are big enough to justify a new minor release, but at the same time we wanted to let those many small improvements out in a proper release.

We would like to welcome okaoka, John Karr, Pavel Timofeev, and Elmer Quintanilla as new contributors. Special thanks to Daniel Cordero for his help on fixing service detection on Gentoo.





BSD support

Thanks to Pavel Timofeev, services support on BSDs has been greatly improved, covering lot more cases.


Some minor bugs has been fixed in the new templating engine.
