Fixed #1562 - Removed facter from PREREQS
Fixed #1558 - Updated virtual fact for xenu and xen0
Fixed #1555 - Ddded operatingsystemrelease for Solaris
Fixed #1559 - Update to dmidecode fact
Added a Process.waitall thread when there's a timeout, to avoid zombies.
Set the timeout the host-based and resolve-based resolutions to 2.
Fixed #1495 - CentOS version detection is now better.
Fixed #1422 - Facter now defaults to 0 timeout.
Fixes #1492 - added kernelversion fact
Added virtual fact
Modified the operatingsystem fact for Debian so it looks in
/etc/debian_version instead of /proc/version.
Fixes #1467 - macaddress not set on Ubuntu
Adding a rake task for creating an archive.
Adding better SuSE detection for both operatingsystem and release.
Add sample test and strawman solution for IP parsing code
Add module level tests for Facter::IPAddress
Fixed #1425 - Solaris
Feature #1487: Package creation scripts for Mac OS X
Feature #1478: Allow specification of --bindir --sbindir --sitelibdir --mandir
Feature #1475: CONFIG['bindir'] CONFIG['sbindir'] have undesirable defaults on
Fixes #1467 - macaddress not set on Ubuntu
Enabled a number of Windows facts - operating system, domain, ipaddress, macaddress,
kernel, ipconfig and others
Fixed Rakefile to include additional files including tests et al
Fixed #1400 - OperatingSystemRelease should now work on CentOS
Changed 'timeout' option to 'limit' to avoid scope issue
Fixes #1376 - Display memory facts for AIX
Fixes #1334 - Forced Facter to use LANG=C
Fixes #1357 - Change ps syntax for OSX and BSD
Set the timeout on the AIX kernelrelease fact to 5 seconds.
Refactored so each fact resolution can specify a separate timeout,
but the default is still 0.5.
Refactered ipmess.rb and util/ip.rb to support separate *BSD logic for
*BSD aliased interfaces.
Updated dmidecode facts fixing ticket #60
Added AIX support for some facts
Add lsbmajdistrelease fact for CentOS and Red Hat
Updated Red Hat spec file for new version
The 'facter' executable now has an option (-p|--puppet) for loading the
Puppet libraries, which gives it access to Puppet's facts.
Added autoloading to Facter with a default of not loading all facts,
which results in a significant speedup when only one fact is sought.
Facts are autoloaded in either a single file named after the fact or
in any file in a directory named after the fact.
Significantly refactored Facter's internals, including creating tests
for all internal classes.
A netmask fact has been added closing ticket #46. It only returns the
netmask of the primary interface (in the same behaviour as the ipaddress
and macaddress facts).
Facts to return multiple interfaces on a host have also been updated.
If you have multiple interfaces on Linux, *BSD, or Solaris/SunOS you will
now get facts for each interface's IP address, MAC address and netmask.
The facts will be structured like:
ipaddress_int = 10.0.0.x
macaddress_int = xx:xx:xx:xx
netmask_int =
Facter now identifies Ubuntu hosts and their releases using the
operatingsystem and operatingsystemrelease facts.
The Debian operatingsystemrelease fact now correctly returns the current
Debian release.
Fixed ticket #48 - ioperatingsystem and operatingsystemrelease for CentOS
Fixed ticket #44 and allowed support for Xen multiple interfaces and aliased
interfaces. Supports both Linux and *BSD.
Added interfaces fact to add as index for ip/MAC address facts
Added Mandrake support for operatingsystem fact - closed ticket #47
Fixed ticket #45
Added netmask.rb closing ticket #46
Fixed Rdoc::usage bug on CentOS 5 - closed Puppet #753 and Facter #40
Added support to return multiple interfaces and their IP addresses and
MAC addressess as facts. Returns interface_interfacename and
macaddress_interfacename. Existing ipaddress and macaddress facts are
unchanged and still returned. Currently Linux only. Closes #6.
Added macaddress fact support for FreeBSD and OpenBSD - closes #37
Added hardwareisa support for *BSD platforms - closed #38
Facter now detects the Mandriva distribution - closes #39
Facter now correctly detects ipaddress on NetBSD - closes #42
A couple of small bugfixes, including fixing Facter.flush so it correctly
flushes cached values, and the mac address fact only returns one
value, not all of them.
Converted all of the fact names to symbols, rather than the somewhat
random case used previously. When the facts are converted to a hash,
they still convert the fact name to a string.
A bugfix release, including fixes for #29, and #30. Also fixed
the SSH keys so they only have the key, not the type or description.
A bugfix release.
Added many new facts, including LSB facts.
Fixed a few small bugs, notably the error you could get when asking
for a non-existent fact.
Added thread exclusivity to memory and processor facts.
Added the ability to retrieve facts by pulling them out of the shell
Temporarily disabled memory and processor facts since they might cause hangs.
Fixed autoloading so that it catches any errors in loaded libraries.
Significant internal refactoring, such as replacing 'tag' with 'confine', and
reusing 'tag' for semantic purposes.
Made autoloading of facts better.
Fixed a "bug" that occurs if there's a file named "facter" in your
ruby search path (as opposed to directory).
Added RubyVersion, FacterVersion, and PuppetVersion facts.
Added autoload capabilities, so you can add facts without modifying
the core library.
Added the ability to retrieve facts by treating them as a method on the
Facter class, e.g., Facter.operatingsystem.
Added a to_hash method to Facter, which retrieves all facts as a hash.
Fixing installer bug.
Identifying CentOS correctly.
Added 'ldapname' attribute, so Facts can be easily converted to
Fixed a bug that occurs when you ask for the value of an unregistered
Added support for OpenBSD (and probably NetBSD and FreeBSD), and significantly
refactored (heh) how facts and resolution mechanisms are added.
Added SuSE distro
Added initial support for Cygwin, thanks to contributions from Eric Sorenson
Added 'id' fact, which basically returns 'whoami'.
Rewrote entirely. It's much simpler to use, and now supports
adding new fact resolution mechanisms at run-time.
Initial release.
