Chef InSpec 4.18.51 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.18.51 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:


  • Readable: A message appears to the user when fetching a profile fails, instead of a wordy stack trace.
  • New Standard: Updating to rspec 3.9 means that output on failures changes from "X should be Y" to "X is expected to be Y".
  • No More Sign-in Sheet: The WindowsUser resource now tests for the user's last login date. Thank you @mbaitelman for your contribution!
  • Transformed: Wired up control blocks to use resources.

Bug Fixes

  • Future Proofing: Compatibility fixes added in preparation for ruby 2.7.
  • Logging at Last: Fixed inspec detect so the --log-level=<level> command works properly.

Backward Incompatibilities

  • Technical Adjustment: Moved lib/fetchers to lib/inspec/fetcher and re-namespaced accordingly.
