Pulp 2.11 Release Notes

EL6 Support Changes

The 2.11 releases are the last releases with support for deploying Pulp itself on EL6. This does not change the use cases of running pulp-agent on EL6 or whether Pulp can sync and publish EL6 repositories, which will still be supported.

In preparation for 2.12+, EL6 users are encouraged to upgrade their Pulp environments to EL7. See the mailing discussion or the blog post for background and motivation of this decision.

Pulp 2.11.0

New Features

  • For RPM content, a full sync will be forced if the sync configuration has been changed or content has been removed since the last sync.
  • Memory improvements! Worker process recycling can be enabled to release unused memory back to the system after tasks complete. This feature is disabled by default. See the process recycling documentation for more info. Thank you to Jan-Otto Kröpke for contributing this feature.
