Re: PDK 1.16.0 now available

On macOS, there was a permissions issue in the PDK 1.16.0 packages (released as PDK which prevented most PDK commands from executing.

PDK, a new release that addresses the permissions issue, is now available. This release contains no other changes.

We're sorry for the inconvenience of the broken release and we have added additional package acceptance tests to catch this issue in the future.

The Puppet Developer Experience team is pleased to announce the latest release of the Puppet Development Kit (PDK), version 1.16.0.

Highlights from the 1.16.0 release include:

 - Added a new "use_litmus" setting for auto-generated Travis CI configurations to make it easier to adopt Puppet Litmus in your module CI pipelines.
- PDK will now correctly place new files based on the root of your module even if you invoke `pdk new` from within a subdirectory of your module.
- To ensure that modules are compatible with all Puppet Masters regardless of their locale, `pdk module build` will now reject files that contain non-ASCII characters in their name.

Reminder: As of PDK 1.14.1, use of the PDK with Ruby versions prior to 2.4.0 is now deprecated and a warning will be issued. PDK 1.16.0 is still fully functional back to Ruby 2.1.9 however we are projecting a PDK 2.0.0 release in early 2020 which will eliminate support for Ruby < 2.4.0.
