10.14.0.rc.1 testing (with Omnibus)


#1

We’re closing in on the 10.14.0 release and we have rc.1 available as
both a gem and as Omnibus packages.

Big new things in 10.14:

  • whyrun (a noop mode, but more useful and truthful) (CHEF-13) [1]
  • output formatters for chef-client output [1]
  • Omnibus packages for Solaris x86 10,11
  • Omnibus packages for Solaris sparc 9,10,11
  • Omnibus now contains Ruby 1.9.3-p194 and Rubygems 1.8.24 (CHEF-2871)
  • IPS package provider (CHEF-2496)

… and much more (73 tickets). Give it a run, let us know what you think.

— Rubygems install:

gem install chef --pre

— Omnibus install:

The Omnibus packages are now provided through an simpler API endpoint
which fully supports HTTPS.

wget https://www.opscode.com/chef/install.sh
sudo bash install.sh -v 10.14.0.rc.1-1

No. That’s a different build system and I’m not sure if it supports
it. I’ll try though.

so, I will assume the msi here (http://www.opscode.com/chef/install.msi) is not the rc1 right?

I am curious how this msi was built and who is the contact? If I want to help on this msi build, who should I contact?

thanks

That is always the latest stable build.

We currently build it with a chef-solo recipe that lives in the old
clojure based omnibus repository.

Migrating the build to omnibus-ruby is the ultimate goal.
