STS RELEASE NOTES LTS RELEASE NOTES DEMO PUPPET
Feb. 6, 2024
You rely on your infrastructure to drive performance, security, and time to value. Puppet Enterprise 2023.6 (STS) and 2021.7.7 (LTS) focus on performance to deliver faster, more efficient automation workflows with a host of updates and enhancements.
Puppet users can expect enhanced increased responsiveness that enables them to meet the demands of modern IT operations faster than before. These releases also improve scalability to ensure that automation remains robust and reliable, even in large IT environments increasing the number of concurrent plans that can run.
RELEASE NOTES DEMO COMPLY + CEM
Puppet is excited to announce the immediate availability of Puppet CEM for Linux v1.9.0, featuring valuable added capabilities for enterprise customers.
Configuration drift is often cited by experts as a leading cause of security incidents and failed audits. Puppet’s Compliance Enforcement Modules (CEM) identify and quickly resolve configuration drift within infrastructure using policy-as-code (PaC) and are available for numerous editions of Windows and Linux.
CEM for Linux v1.9.0 incorporates support for the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks for two additional operating systems: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 9 and Oracle Linux 9, to ensure that these popular operating systems remain configured according to security policy. Both Level 1 and Level 2 benchmarks are supported.
CIS Level 1 benchmark profiles cover base-level configurations that are easier to implement and have minimal impact on business functionality. Level 2 benchmark profiles are intended for high-security environments and require more coordination and planning to implement with minimal business disruption.
Organizational efficiency gets a boost thanks to an improved auditing process which permits running a single Puppet Bolt® plan that includes up to 40 audit tasks to verify the configuration on one or more specified nodes.
To help ensure compatibility between CEM for Linux and Puppet 8, the range of supported versions for the Puppet Labs® firewall module was changed. The firewall module must be at version 5.0 or later, but earlier than 6.0.
Dec. 13, 2023
With the debut of Puppet Comply 2.18.0, Puppet is thrilled to announce the immediate availability of a powerful REST API for Puppet Comply. This valuable new interface allows users to quickly retrieve data at scale from Comply to share among groups and enrich other tools in the stack.
The new API leverages Comply’s native scalability to support data extraction for up to 100,000 nodes, enabling simpler enterprise compliance reporting at the summary and detail levels. Puppet’s open, integrated approach ensures data consistency across teams and tech to unlock productivity through smoother collaboration. No matter how you manage compliance, Comply’s new API enables the transparency, accountability, and responsiveness auditors require – and creates a single window of deep compliance visibility.
Additionally, an updated CIS-CAT Pro Assessor and no fewer than 10 updated Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks help Comply users stay abreast of the latest security standards across operating systems. Updates for AlmaLinux, macOS 11 and 12, Oracle Linux, and RHEL 8, along with a brand-new benchmark for macOS 13, round out the growing list of supported CIS Benchmarks in Comply.

The latest release of CEM for Linux features brand-new support for enforcing Level 1 and Level 2 CIS Benchmarks for Rocky Linux 8.
Additionally, support for RHEL 8, AlmaLinux 8, and Oracle Linux 8 systems is now enhanced with the addition of several additional important security controls, including ensuring that the Linux talk and remote shell (rsh) clients are not installed, and automatically locking inactive user accounts within 30 days of password expiration. Not to be left out, Oracle Linux 7 now benefits from the added security of no fewer than 5 additional controls!

Compliance scalability continues to be a challenge for enterprise organizations, which means it's a major focus for the Comply engineering team. Following the notable increases to supported node count in 2.14.0, Comply 2.15.0 has also now dramatically improved export functionality to allow users to export raw data results for up to 50,000 nodes.
Leaning into our valued partnership with the Center for Internet Security (CIS), Comply 2.15.0 also integrates the CIS-CAT Pro® Assessor v4.32.0 with updates to MacOS benchmarks.
When it comes to code delivery, usability is key to saving time and reducing headaches. A new series of UX updates – including message updates and a refresh of some of the most user-facing pages in CD4PE – make it easier than ever for teams to work together to integrate and deliver great Puppet code. Additionally, a slew of issue fixes and security updates make sure you can keep working in CD4PE with confidence.

RELEASE NOTES DEMO PUPPET COMPLY
One of the most frequently requested features for Puppet Comply has been to support different user roles. Comply 2.14.0 adds role-based access control, enabling you to designate three roles based on access need. We also increased node support in this release so you can confidently stretch your compliant infrastructure even further.
We also updated integration with the latest CIS-CAT Pro Assessor and numerous benchmarks, and resolved a few vulnerabilities in this release.
With CEM for Windows, you can bring your Puppet Enterprise-managed nodes into compliance with the CIS Benchmark for Windows Server 2022, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10. The expanded support in CEM for Windows 1.4, coupled with the existing broad coverage in CEM for Linux, allows you to enforce CIS Benchmark compliance across your Windows and Linux infrastructure.
PE 2023.1 RELEASE NOTES
PE 2021.7.3 RELEASE NOTES
These patch releases include fixes and performance upgrades for existing features.
These releases represent the latest updates in the Puppet Enterprise (PE) 2023 and 2021 streams, following the releases of PE 2023.0 and PE 2021.7.2 LTS in January 2023. These new, backward-compatible releases contain fixes and performance upgrades for existing features and functionality.For a detailed list of enhancements and fixes in PE 2023.1, see the PE 2023.1 release notes.For a detailed list of enhancements and fixes in PE 2021.7.3, see the PE 2021.7.3 release notes.For security and vulnerability announcements, see CVE Content.
Effective compliance requires good visibility. Comply’s dashboard has received significant enhancements in 2.13.0, bringing new clarity to your compliance standing. Compliance statistics are reported on servers that live on-prem or in the cloud. Search and subset node views based on server attributes, such as name or operating system, and drill down to key focus areas to quickly identify areas where action is needed.
As always, we called upon our unique partnership with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) to power Comply with the latest CIS-CAT Pro Assessor (v4.28.0), and we’ve incorporated the latest benchmarks and standards so your compliance has the most up-to-date expert standards built in.
We even had time to fix a couple of nagging little bugs from prior releases, address a few CVEs, and boost performance.
