Updated augeas packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Augeas is a configuration editing tool. Augeas parses configuration files in their native formats and transforms them into a tree. Configuration changes are made by manipulating this tree and saving it back into native config files.
The augeas packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.9.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#691483
Previously, due to a bug in the source code, parsing invalid files failed silently without any error message. With this update, error messages are provided to inform users about the problem.
All users of Augeas are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
