    Puppet 3.0 has a lot of performance improvements and some new
    functionality compared to Puppet 2.7. For a new deployment I
    definitely recommend trying Puppet 3.0. It's fairly easy to install
    using the packages we publish at yum.puppetlabs.com and
    apt.puppetlabs.com. Information is available at:
    http://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/puppetlabs_package_repositories.html

    The other thing to keep in mind is that Puppet uses semantic version
    numbers. There are some incompatibilities between Puppet 2.7 and 3.0.
    We will make every effort to preserve compatibility across the entire
    3.x series, so starting with 3.0 should give you a really long
    "compatibility horizon" so to speak.

    Hope this helps,
    -Jeff

    That's a another reason for me to go toward 3.0.1. I assume it is a stable
    release?

    The long answer...

    It's an officially supported release, if that's what you mean. I
    can't say there aren't any bugs though. =)

    We're actively developing the 3 major version, so you'll see 3.0.2
    released soon, with bug fixes, and 3.1.0 released shortly after with
    new, backwards-compatible functionality.

    The short answer: Yes, it's stable and any issues are likely valid
    ones that we'll fix as quickly as possible.

    Great to hear that Jeff. Confirmed, 3.0.1 it is. Is there a bug list I can
    track?

    The best way I've found to track what issues we know about and what
    version we plan to fix them in is available at:
