ChiMeRA is a configuration management tool designed around three basic concepts. The first is a framework for managing servers, allowing for command execution and file transfer over SSH. The second is a repository for managing files that enables change tracking, archiving, and management of various user definable configuration files across multiple servers through a standard revision control tool. The third concept is an aesthetic principle of simplicity, giving administrators straightforward interfaces to manage complicated environments.

Release Notes: This release added a simple Web interface based on the Django platform. It includes an integrated server inventory application, file management and delta tracking application, a workflow application that applies Unix shell concepts to remote server command execution (running your existing scripts in sequence or forwarding output to a different operation on a different server for processing), a calendar, a simple note taking application, and a tagging application for organizing your assets within the system.
Release Notes: This release makes a number of things (like Python location) more "generic" and suitable for first time use. In addition, the "md5" field has been removed from the files database along with the code used to collect that data.
Release Notes: This is the first release for evaluation purposes.
