Chef Client 13.8.5 released!


Ohai Chefs!

We’re happy to announce the release of Chef v13.8.5! This is a small bug fix release to resolve 2 issues we found in the 13.8 release:

  • chef-client run failures due to a failure in a newer version of the FFI gem on RHEL 6.x and 7.x

  • knife failures when running knife cookbook site install to install a deprecated cookbook that has no replacement

Get the Build

As always, you can download binaries directly from downloads.chef.io2 or by using the new mixlib-install command line utility available in ChefDK 0.19.6 or greater.

$ mixlib-install download chef -v 13.8.5

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

# In Shell
$ curl | sudo bash -s -- -P chef -v 13.8.5

# In Windows Powershell
. { iwr -useb } | iex; install -project chef -version 13.8.5
