hi all,

we just released rex-1.3.2. This is a bugfix release, upgrade is recommended for all users.

Shortly after releasing 1.3.0, we followed it up with 1.3.1, fixing a Rex::Commands::DB related testing bug, that slipped through our test suite.

During that work we also discovered another bug, that was affecting BSD users since 1.2.1. The solution was to refactor the MD5 checksum calculation method, that is being used during e.g. file change detection.

Among other smaller improvements mentioned below, the fix for this issue is now being released as 1.3.2.

Since we're keen to continuously improve our QA processes, we also added new tests that could catch similar issues in the future, as part of this fix.

Special thanks for stephanj on IRC who helped a lot with testing those changes and suggesting further modifications.

For more details check out the release notes: http://www.rexify.org/howtos/releases/1.3.2.html

have fun,
Rex Team

Not keeping up. When I started out doing web development, hundreds of years ago when CGI and Perl was a pretty neat thing, it felt like there were few tools for web development. Back in the day even formmail.pl was a pretty neat idea... until it turned out to be a pretty hideous security hole.

Hello everyone,

we just released Rex 1.3.1, which is a bugfix release addressing an issue related to Rex::Commands::DB tests, happening when Test::mysqld was present.

Have lots of fun,

Hello all,

today we are proud to announce Rex 1.3.0.

We want to thank every contributor who made this release possible. We also welcome Dmitry Kopytov as new contributor.

During this release cycle we tried to focus more on smoothing out the rougher edges and improving the documentation and test suite. Several aspects of the documentation work are mainly happening in the background and not in the codebase itself for now. So there are no "real" new features this time, but because of the amount of changes, and especially because of enabling the new template engine by default, we felt a new major release was warranted.

You'll find all changes on the release notes page at: http://www.rexify.org/howtos/releases/1.3.0.html

Have a lot of fun,

The Rex Team

[Editor Note: At the risk of spoiling the joke a bit, we want to make sure that everyone knows that the following is satire, and we're actually quite fond of the companies we mention. Docker, CoreOS, Google, Vagrant/Hashicorp, Heroku, Aphyr, Amazon, Mongo, Redis—we love you really and mean you ...

Second part of "Rex in practice" series, "Test-driven infrastructure", has just been published.

#perl #cfgmgmt #devops
I hate writing tests. There’s only one thing I hate more: not having tests. So I like it when writing and running tests for anything is easy. …
