Puppet shares future plans for its developer kit 

Moving forward, the DevX strategy for Puppet is to build a new PDK while maintaining the existing PDK at version 2.x.

Updates to the PDK 2.x will be limited to bug fixes and updates to support the latest Puppet gem, according to Dave Armstrong, a senior software engineer on the DevX team at Puppet in a blog post.

“Since its launch, the PDK has come to support the creation of more than just modules and classes. With each successive addition, the template and the packaging system had to support more dependencies, and these dependencies needed to be monitored and updated in line with Puppet agent support and things like security fixes,” Armstrong added. “This overhead meant the PDK couldn’t move forward quickly in supporting the wealth of content our users wanted.”
