Ohai Chefs!
We’re happy to announce the release of Chef Client 14.1.12.

Chef Client Release Notes 14.1.12:

This release resolves a number of regressions in 14.1:

  • git resource: don’t use --prune-tags as it’s really new.
  • rhsm_repo resource: now works
  • apt_repository resource: use the repo_name property to name files
  • windows_task resource: properly handle commands with arguments
  • windows_task resource: handle creating tasks as the SYSTEM user
  • remote_directory resource: restore the default for the overwrite property

Ohai 14.1.3

  • Properly detect FIPS environments
  • shard plugin: work in FIPS compliant environments
  • filesystem plugin: Handle BSD platforms

As always, you can download binaries directly from downloads.chef.io (make sure to select current), or by using the mixlib-install command line utility available in ChefDK.

$ mixlib-install download chef -c stable -v 14.1.12
