"It's starting off to be a good week for open source configuration management vendor Puppet Labs. The startup announced today that it has raised an additional $5 million in venture funding, bringing total funding to $7 million to date. Those new funds come on the same day that a major new release of the open source Puppet framework is being made generally available.

"Version 2.6 of Puppet -- a widely used open source framework that provides administrators with the ability to manage system configuration and provisioning -- adds new capabilities to the configuration management framework including a new event model, better integration via REST and preliminary support for Windows.

""You explain to Puppet what you want your systems to look like and Puppet will make sure that's the case, and as you change specifications, Puppet will update the machines on your network," Puppet Labs CEO Luke Kanies told InternetNews.com."
