Pulp 2.12.0 is now Generally Available in the stable repositories:


New features for Pulp 2.12 include new features added to the Pulp platform, as well as the Puppet, RPM, and Docker plugins. Many bug fixes are also included in the 2.12.0 release.

More information about these new features can be found in the features list below, as well as in the 2.12 release notes

Try out the new features, and let us know how they work for you!

Since the release of Release Candidate 2, we’ve decided to pull the pulp_python upgrade to version 2.0 from this release, due to usability and documentation issues that we feel still need to be worked out before that pluginis ready for release. We’ll be including it in a future release. Users currently testing a pre-release of 2.12.0 (a Beta or Release Candidate) may need to downgrade the installed versions of the pulp-python packages to 1.1.3-1 as a result.

These are the current stable packages for the pulp_python plugin as of Pulp 2.12.0:

  • pulp-python-admin-extensions-1.1.3-1
  • pulp-python-plugins-1.1.3-1
  • python-pulp-python-common-1.1.3-1


The Pulp 2 stable repositories are included in the pulp repo files:

After enabling the pulp-stable or pulp-2-stable repository, you’ll want to follow the standard upgrade path with migrations:

$ sudo systemctl stop httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd
$ sudo yum upgrade
$ sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db
$ sudo systemctl start httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat pulp_streamer goferd

The pulp_streamer and goferd services should be omitted if those services are not installed.
