Chef 11.0.0.beta.2 Released


#1

Hi Chefs,

We’ve released an updated Chef 11 Client beta.

Changes

Installing

To install the omnibus package using the installer:

wget -qO- "https://www.opscode.com/chef/install.sh" | sudo bash -s -- -p

To install via rubygems:

gem install chef --pre

(note: gem will be pushed after rubygems.org maintenance is completed).

As always, please report any bugs you find here or on tickets.opscode.com.

Question: Will the standard omnibus form start automatically shipping Chef
11 once it’s released? (ie; no “-- -p” required anymore)

If so, for those of us that need to make code changes and tweaks, will
there be a way to force install chef 10.18 (or whatever) from omnibus until
we are ready for Chef 11?

Thank you!
Brian

When using the installer script, you automatically get the latest release Omnibus package. The -p flag means “prerelease.” Side note: I would’ve preferred --prerelease, but portable shell scripting.

If so, for those of us that need to make code changes and tweaks, will there be a way to force install chef 10.18 (or whatever) from omnibus until we are ready for Chef 11?
You can pass the -v VERSION flag to the installer script to specify the desired version. Note that the default knife bootstrap template does this automatically, so it installs the version of Chef that you have (but be careful if you want to use Chef 11 for knife on your workstation before upgrading to Chef 11 on your nodes). You can also browse the available (release-only) packages on http://www.opscode.com/chef/install/, download them, and install them by whatever means fits with your environment.

Thank you!

HTH,

I forgot to mention that we also fixed a bug in the packaging where the new chef-apply and chef-shell commands were not being linked [CHEF-3802]. I was only looking at the git log for chef itself. Apologies.
