Chef 11 Preview


#1

Hi,

I was wanting to preview/test Chef 11 and was looking at the preview wiki page:

http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Chef+11+Server+Preview

Is this still relavent? Is the package / vargrant demo the best way to
approach it? Or it is better to grab the source from github and build
that? Or maybe there is an omnibus installer that is more up to date?

IIRC from speaking with Seth at Surge, the webui isn’t included, but
that isn’t a problem as we mostly use the api.

Cheers, Gavin

That is still relevant but is a bit out of date. We plan to be
releasing a beta in a couple weeks built on the omnibus server
packages.

Excellent, thanks. I’ll have a play about with the vagrant repo :slight_smile:
