Chef 10.14.0.beta.3 and whyrun testing


#1

All of the Chef contributions have been merged to master, excluding
those related to the webui that I’ll do after I tinker with branches
shortly. I’ve released a beta.3 prerelease of 10.14.0 that you can get
from Rubygems.org. There are no Omnibus prereleases, but you can use
the 10.12.0 packages and use /opt/chef/embedded/bin/gem to install a
prerelease inside omnibus.

We need your help testing why-run on your run-lists and your
platforms, so we’ve create a page with helpful information on testing
and a table for logging what you’ve tried.

Please poke around and file a bug with a whyrun label if you find
something that you think isn’t right. Detailed bugs are the best bugs,
and the best tester is you.

First of all, thanks to Justin Witrick for being the first to step up and test! And thanks in advance to everyone else for testing.

In addition to testing whyrun, I’d also love feedback on the error inspector output. You can provide valuable feedback if you’re a Chef pro, but I’m especially interested to know if this helps people who are new to Chef, so if you have Chef newbies on your team and have the spare cycles to get them using 10.14 beta, I’d love to hear any feedback.

Thanks again,


Dan DeLeo
