The latest release for the Puppet Enterprise release track, PE 2021.6, is now available! This release incorporates new features, enhancements, and resolved issues from all previous major releases. The following are a few highlights. Please refer to the release notes HERE for a complete list and full descriptions.


New features in this release include:

  • PE version 2021.6 upgrades PostgreSQL to version 14

  • Lockless code deploys are no longer experimental

  • Run plans without blocking code deployments

  • RBAC API v2 GET /users endpoint

Enhancements in this release include:

  • Optimized some PuppetDB queries

  • Upgraded Bouncy Castle to 1.70

  • Report compilation failure results for apply blocks

This version adds support for these platforms:

Primary server

  • FIPS 140-2 compliant Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 x86_64

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 x86_64

  • Ubuntu (General Availability kernels) 20.04 x86_64


  • macOS 12 x86_64


Resolved in this release:

  • Code Manager didn't delete spec directories

    • Code Manager deployments failed to delete spec directories due to an issue with r10k. To fix this, we upgraded r10k to version 3.14.1.

  • LDAP connection timeout setting was ignored

    • In the console, the LDAP ‘connect_timeout’ field wasn't correctly passed to the connection attempt and, as a result, the value wasn't applied in the LDAP configuration.

  • The plan that upgrades the secondary node sometimes failed

    • When running puppet infrastructure upgrade compiler or puppet infrastructure upgrade replica, the plan that upgrades the secondary node sometimes failed on the step where install.bash runs on the node to update the agent.
