Chef Infra Client 17.9.52 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 17.9.52 of Chef Infra Client.

Bug Fixes

  • Resource subscriptions syntax is now properly validated to provide better error messages.

Compliance Phase Improvements

Reporter Updates

  • Resolved failures when running the audit-enforcer reporter.

  • Updated the bundled cacerts to the 2022-02-01 release with new certificates.
