What’s New in Beaker 0.9?

As of version 0.9, Beaker no longer relies on Cobbler for provisioning systems. A new lab controller daemon, beaker-provision, executes power commands and manages the TFTP root. Kickstarts are generated by and served from the Beaker server.

Within Beaker itself, compatibility has been maintained and the change should be largely invisible. In particular, kickstart metadata for systems and recipes will behave the same as in previous releases.

However, if your site is using any Cobbler functionality directly you may need to take steps to migrate the configuration to Beaker. See Migrating Cobbler configuration.
