Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.12.0 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:
- Who's Who: The
serviceresource now has a
startuserproperty, which lets you examine the username that started the service.
- Comma Fix: Looks like we had some syntax errors in our examples in the documentation for the
wmiresource, which Jeff Brimager pointed out. A few commas later and all is well!

groupresource was not working correctly as it under-reported membership. That has been fixed. So if you are on MacOS, you are now a
- No Longer Available: We have dropped support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11, which was EOL'd as of March 31, 2019.
- Tidying Up: The
inspec-coregem, a distribution with fewer dependencies and no need for compilers, will no longer include WinRM functionality. This change does not impact most users of Chef InSpec, only those who use the specialized
inspec-coreversion. If you need WinRM functionality, install the
train-winrmgem, but please note that winrm support requires a compiler to install.
