2014-01-03 - Release 1.1.0-rc1

Summary

This release of concat was 90% written by Joshua Hoblitt, and the module team would like to thank him for the huge amount of work he put into this release.

This module deprecates a bunch of old parameters and usage patterns, modernizes much of the manifest code, simplifies a whole bunch of logic and makes improvements to almost all parts of the module.

The other major feature is windows support, courtesy of luisfdez, with an alternative version of the concat bash script in ruby. We've attempted to ensure that there are no backwards incompatible changes, all users of 1.0.0 should be able to use 1.1.0 without any failures, but you may find deprecation warnings and we'll be aggressively moving for a 2.0 to remove those too.

For further information on deprecations, please read: https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-concat/blob/main/README.md#api-deprecations

  • Added -r flag to read so that filenames with \ will be read correctly.
  • sort always uses LANG=C.
