Chef Infra Server 14.1.0 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 14.1.0 of Chef Server.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • The server status endpoint can now be configured to include the version of the Chef Infra Server in status requests with a new include_version_in_status configuration in the chef-server.rb file.
  • The supports field in cookbook metadata now allows version numbers that only reference a major version, such as supports 'debian', '>= 7'. Thanks for reporting this issue @acondrat!
  • A new nginx['time_format'] configuration in the chef-server.rb file allows changing the timestamp format in NGINX logs from time_iso8601 to time_local.

Platform Support

We will no longer be producing Chef Infra Server packages for RHEL 6.x as this platform became end-of-life (EOL) Nov 2020. See the Red Hat Linux Enterprise Lifecycle page for additional information on the RHEL 6 lifecycle.

Upgrading From Earlier Releases

Please keep in mind that upgrading from releases before 14.0 will run an automatic Elasticsearch reindexing operation for existing Solr users. We estimate the reindexing operation will take 2 minutes for each 1000 nodes, but it could take more time depending on your server hardware and the complexity of your Chef data.
