We are delighted to announce the availability of version 21.2.278 of Chef Workstation.
We've improved the performance of many of the included command-line tools in Chef Workstation along with the performance of the Chef Workstation menubar application.
The Kitchen vCenter driver has been updated to prevent failures while running on Windows hosts.
The Kitchen Azure driver now includes support for setting the public IP SKU with a new
public_ip_sku driver configuration option thanks to @simonjefford! For example:
platforms: - name: ubuntu-1804 driver: image_urn: Canonical:UbuntuServer:18.04.4-LTS:latest vnet_id: /subscriptions/b6e7eee9-YOUR-GUID-HERE-03ab624df016/resourceGroups/pendrica-infrastructure/providers/Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/pendrica-arm-vnet subnet_id: subnet-10.1.0 public_ip: true public_ip_sku: Standard
To learn more about this configuration option, see the Azure Public IP Documentation.
You can now rename the generator directory after generation without breaking generator usage.
Several potential race conditions in Berkshelf have been resolved. This may improve the reliability of testing multiple instances in Test Kitchen when Berkshelf is used for cookbook dependency resolution.
Cookstyle has been updated with the latest RuboCop engine for improved code issue detection and correction. Additionally, RuboCop's
Lint/ErbNewArguments cop has been enabled to detect deprecated usage of the ERB class in libraries.
