I couldn’t be more pleased to announce general availability of Chef Automate. The first release 0.5.1 is available for download at

With Chef Automate we have introduced visibility features that enable comprehensive views of the state of your infrastructure fleet. Chef Automate also includes workflow capabilities taken from the product formerly known as Chef Delivery.

This release also makes available SAML authentication to Chef Automate (extensible to Chef Management Console if Automate is configured), including auto-provisioning of users via SAML. Details of that feature can be found at
