Chef InSpec 4.37.23 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.37.23 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:


  • Updated the inspec init plugin command (#5536) with the following changes:

    • The values of flags passed to the inspec init plugin command are now wrapped in double quotes instead of single quotes.
    • Template files are now ERB files.
    • The activator flag replaces the hook flag, which is now an alias.
  • Added Ubuntu to the list of FIPS-enabled platforms. (#5533)

Backward Incompatibilities

  • Removed support for Chef Compliance Server and Chef Automate 1 from the inspec automate command, as both products are EOL. (#5534)
