Chef InSpec 4.19.0 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.19.0 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:

New Features

  • In Your Hands: Develop your own Chef InSpec Reporter plugin and determine how Chef InSpec will report result data. Learn more about Chef Inspec plugins and implementation in our documentation.
  • Easier Form: The inspec archive command packs your profile into a tar.gz file that includes the profile in JSON form as the inspec.json file. Use this JSON file to programmatically examine the profile without needing to load it into Chef InSpec.


  • More Dates: Chef InSpec accepts a variety of date formats in the waivers.yaml configuration file, rather than only the YYYY-MM-DD format.
