    • New Feature
    • Puppet now uses CFPropertyList to read launchd plists instead of shelling out to plutil, significantly speeding up user, group, and service management on OSX.

    Description

      Currently Puppet has to run `plutil -convert xml1` on EVERY plist it encounters because it has no way of supporting binary plist files. The CFPropertyList project is a Ruby library that allows direct access to read/write plist files WITHOUT using Apple's CoreFoundation libraries (which give Puppet problems due to green threading). Puppet should be able to utilize that library to read/write plist files as it would speed up service resource handling exponentially.
