Chef 14.12.3 Released!

#1

Hey Everyone,

We're happy to announce the release of Chef 14.12.3! This release includes updates resources and components as well as bugfixes.

Updated Resources

windows_service

The windows_service resource no longer resets credentials on a service when using the :start action without the :configure action. Thanks @jasonwbarnett for fixing this.

windows_certificate

The windows_certificate resource now imports nested certificates while importing P7B certs.

Updated Components

  • nokogiri 1.10.1 -> 1.10.2
  • ruby 2.5.3 -> 2.5.5
  • InSpec 3.7.1 -> 3.9.0
  • The unused windows-api gem is no longer bundled with Chef on Windows hosts

Get the Build

As always, you can download binaries directly from downloads.chef.io or by using the mixlib-install command line utility:

$ mixlib-install download chef -v 14.12.3

Alternatively, you can install Chef using one of the following command options:

# In Shell
$ curl https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.sh | sudo bash -s -- -P chef -v 14.12.3

# In Windows Powershell
. { iwr -useb https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.ps1 } | iex; install -project chef -version 14.12.3

If you want to give this version a spin in Test Kitchen, create or add the following to your kitchen.yml file:

provisioner:
  product_name: chef
  product_version: 14.12.3

Enjoy,
Tim
