I’ve just pushed Chef 0.10.6 beta 1 to rubygems.org. There’s over 70 bug fixes and improvements included in this release. Highlights include:
- a completely rewritten command execution backend for windows, adding support for environment variables and CWD
- Start handlers to notify you when a chef run begins
- Numerous improvements to the yum package provider
We’d love to get a release candidate shipped later this week, so please give the beta a shot and let us know if you run in to any issues.
As usual, you can install the beta with
gem install chef --pre
