Chef server 11 version number in rpm package?


#1

I’m guessing someone else has already reported this, but we installed a new
chef 11 server using the omnibus method on centos 6.3 on monday, and the
end result is this package installed:
chef-server.x86_64 11.0.2-1.el6

and it all just seems to work out of the box! Yay!

My coworker noticed this on the management screen:
Version 11.0.0.alpha.1 — Copyright © 2009-2013 Opscode

Is this just a string that didn’t get updated, or does the package we
installed hold server 11.0 alpha 1?

You should upgrade to 11.0.4.

In 11.0.2, there were some shenanigans between the gemspec and Gemfile that caused rails to not get updated, so the 11.0.2 version has the YAML exploit bug.

11.0.4 also fixes the version number.
