Chef 11 Server alpha packages available

Hi all,

We’ve started publishing nightly alpha pre-release builds of Chef 11 Server. Packages are available for the following platforms:

  • CentOS 5 64-bit
  • CentOS 6 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit and 64-bit

The chef-server cookbook (on master) has been updated to install the appropriate omnibus server package based on the platform it is run on.

The same chef-server cookbook now includes a Vagrantfile to make setting up a demo very easy if you have a recent Ruby and VirtualBox installed.

Current instructions and further details can be found here:

If you have time to take this pre-release for a spin and have questions, suggestions, or bugs to report, please send them our way (either on this list or as bugs in the CHEF project as detailed on above wiki page).
