Chef InSpec 4.21.1 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.21.1 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:

New Features

  • Clark Kent: New html2 reporter now available! The html2 reporter shows all the data from your Chef InSpec run and even allows you to customize your report formatting with custom JavaScript and CSS options. At a later date, the html2 reporter will replace the current rspec-based html reporter.


  • Check It Out!: The interface resource features several improvements:
    • The resource supports macOS and FreeBSD
    • The resource includes a pluralized interfaces to query multiple interfaces
    • New ipv4_address and ipv6_address properties return the primary IP address for an interface

Bug Fixes

  • Better Performance: Chef InSpec no longer reopens a new SSH connection for each command when targeting hosts over SSH.
