This is a security bugfix release: Cdist has so far used whatever umask has been setup on the local and remote system. This may have lead to /var/lib/cdist being accessable by others, including data from explorers.

This release fixes this bug and setups a umask of 077 within cdist. That means if you are using the __file type without the --mode parameter, your files may now have "more secure permissions" than you would like.

It is recommended to update as soon as possible. For more information visit the cdist homepage.
