Chef InSpec 5.22.50 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 5.22.50 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the virtualization.virtual_system? helper in the virtualization resource to correctly return true if run against a Podman container. (#6949)
  • Silenced warnings about transforming the URL fetcher into the git fetcher when executing profiles from a Git repository. This message is now added to the debug log. (#6956)
  • Fixed the Uninitialized constant Parser::AST::Processor::Mixin error with the Parser gem dependency. (#7036)
  • Fixed an error with the URL fetcher which failed to work when the current directory is not a Git repository. (#7023)


  • Updated the output of the cmp matcher when a control fails while using a negation such as 'should_not'. (#6986)

    For example, if the value of key is 3, then this fails:

    its(key) { should_not cmp "3" }

    and returns this output:

    expected: 3
         got: 3

    The updated output returns:

    expected it not to be == "3"
         got: 3

    Thanks @Taknok!
