Chef 10.16.0 RC 0 available for testing


#1

The first release candidate of Chef 10.16.0 is now available for gem or
omnibus installation.

Install the rubygem using the prerelease argument

gem install chef --pre

Download the RC Omnibus package

curl https://www.opscode.com/chef/install.sh > install.sh && sudo bash
./install.sh -v 10.16.0.rc.0-1

This is mostly a bug fix release but contains some new features like
’knife environment from file --all’ support and improves security around
the contents of your bootstrap templates. There’s some refactoring of
internal attribute resources that will only matter if you’re heavily
accessing internal methods.

Yo Bryan,

Any word on CHEF-3478? Was in one of your earlier messages but no
mention of it here. [0]

We’re kinda counting on this for some pretty awesome functionality,
and it’s good to finally have someone refactor my old
Chef::Application codez. [1]

Either way is cool – cheers,

AJ

Made some noise internally at Heavy Water about seeing if we can’t get
CHEF-3497 [0] ready for this release too. Breaks huge swathes of knife
plugins currently – awesome. :stuck_out_tongue:

Cheers,

AJ

IIRC I sided with holding it for Chef 11 since that’s coming soon and
we moved a bit around in CHEF-3478, but if you could really use it
sooner on second look it really shouldn’t affect anyones abuse of the
internal methods.
