Breaking change:

With this release family refers to the distribution family while name refers to the specific distribution. For example, the family attribute for ubuntu is debian. Further, architecture information is collected for Linux and OS X using uname -m.

  • The following platforms are now part of the redhat family whereas before they were their own families: centos oracle scientific enterpriseenterprise xenserver cloudlinux ibm_powerkvm nexus_centos wrlinux
