Package Release Status

Launchpad, Ubuntu, Debian

Released (2.6.18, 2.7.21, 3.1.1)

Notes

AuthorNote
mdeslaur
Upstream no longer supports 0.25.x as found in lucid. The code
is substantially different, rendering a backport of this
security update difficult. Since puppet in Lucid is almost
end-of-life, we aren't planning on backporting the security fix
to it. For Lucid users, we recommend using puppet
2.7.1-1ubuntu3.8~ubuntu10.04.1 currently in lucid-backports.
