#1

Ohai Chefs!

Today we are announcing Chef version 12.15.19.

###Enhancements

  • Omnibus packages are now available for Ubuntu 16.04 from Omnitruck and APT.

  • Added cab_package resource and provider which supports the installation of CAB/cabinet packages on Windows. Example:

cab_package 'Install .NET 3.5 sp1 via KB958488' do
  source 'C:\Users\xyz\AppData\Local\Temp\Windows6.1-KB958488-x64.cab'
  action :install
end

cab_package 'Remove .NET 3.5 sp1 via KB958488' do
  source 'C:\Users\xyz\AppData\Local\Temp\Windows6.1-KB958488-x64.cab'
  action :remove
end

NOTE: cab_package resource does not support URLs in source.

  • Allow deletion of registry_key without the need for users to pass data key in values hash.

  • knife ssh now uses the command line prompt for sudo if set.

Please see the CHANGELOG.md for complete details.

This release can be downloaded from the Chef Client download page or from Omnitruck.
