Facter release notes
This version of Facter is not included in Puppet Enterprise. The latest version of PE includes Facter 3.6.
This page documents the history of the Facter 3.9 series.
Released September 13, 2017.
This is a feature and bug-fix release of Facter.
The new fact recognizes multiple hypervisors in nested virtualization environments, and includes metadata about each hypervisor where available. The
hypervisorsfact and libwhereami are the first steps toward improved virtualzation support in future releases of Facter. They also reduce its dependence on the external tool
virt-what, which has a few detection bugs and requires root to run.
This new feature should therefore also remediate discrepancies in Facter’s output when run as root and as a non-root user under virtualized environments.
