AWS OpsWorks for Puppet Enterprise now supports Puppet Enterprise version 2018.1.7. With this version, the Puppet Enterprise Console has been rebranded and platform support for Ubuntu version 18.04 is available. This is important for customers upgrading from soon to be end-of-life Ubunto 14.04. See Puppet Enterprise's release documentation for a complete list of the enhancements introduced with Puppet Enterprise 2018.1.7.

OpsWorks for Puppet Enterprise is a fully managed Puppet master. This means customers do not have to do anything to update their Puppet master server to 2018.1.7. It will automatically occur during the weekly system maintenance window scheduled individually by each customer. 

It's easy to get started with OpsWorks for Puppet Enterprise by following the Getting Started walk-through. It takes no longer than 15 minutes to get a Puppet Enterprise master provisioned.
