Chef-runner v0.4.0


Ohai Chefs!

chef-runner v0.4.0 is out. For the first time, this release comes with
pre-built binaries for OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD.


  • Support provisioning of “global” Vagrant machines via their UUID.
    For this, pass the UUID reported by vagrant global-status to
    chef-runner’s -M option. Among other things, this new feature allows
    you to provision Vagrant machines managed by Test Kitchen.

  • Use Librarian-Chef to install cookbook dependencies if Cheffile
    exists. (Also removes temporary Librarian-Chef files from cookbooks
    before transferring them.)

  • New option -version shows the current program version as well as
    target OS and architecture.


  • Extend script/build to enable building of download archives with
    pre-built chef-runner binaries for OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD.
    Builds triggered by this script report the exact Git version that is
    being compiled.

  • Show error message of vagrant ssh-config in case it fails.
