Chef Infra Client 16.9.20 Released!

Hey folks,

We have a small bug fix release out today for Chef Infra Client 16 users.

  • Updated the package resource on FreeBSD to work with recent changes to the pkgng executable. Thanks @mrtazz
  • Added a missing dependency in the chef-zero binary that could cause failures running chef-zero.
  • Resolved failures running the audit cookbook from our yet to be fully released Chef Infra Compliance Phase. As it turns out this dark launch was not as dark as we had hoped.

Get the Build

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

$ mixlib-install download chef -v 16.9.20

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

# In Shell
$ curl | sudo bash -s -- -P chef -v 16.9.20
# In Windows Powershell
. { iwr -useb } | iex; install -project chef -version 16.9.20

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

  product_name: chef
  product_version: 16.9.20
