[ANNOUNCE] Grocery-Delivery and Taste-Tester releases!

Ohai Chefs!

Today Facebook has cut long overdue releases of our two biggest chef tools:
Grocery-Delivery and Taste-Tester.

Grocery-Delivery is a tool for keeping your Chef Server(s) in sync with your
VCS repository - i.e. continuous delivery to your Chef Server(s). Taste-Tester
is a tool for managing chef-zero instances as a testing infrastructure and
being able to leverage production systems for real tests.

Changelogs are here:


  • Remove timestamp option
  • Add option to track symlinks
  • Return exit status properly
  • Fix bug with roles/databags
  • Support JSON roles
  • Add pre_upload hook
  • Report errors in hooks more clearly


  • Add a NoOp transport
  • Replace --locallink with --transport
  • Add option to support tracking symlinks
  • Add option to allow specifying a knife config
  • Use /bin/echo rather than built-in for better cross-platform support
  • Add config file for taste-untester
  • Fix tunnel support

(Between meals is a library they both use which was also released today.)

taste-tester-0.0.13, grocery-delivery-0.0.8, and between-meals-0.0.8 are all
available on rubygems.org.
