Is there a way to upgrade chefdk in place? Also what happens to included
gems when I upgrade? i.e. kitchen-vagrant.

You can just install the new package and things should work (please file a bug report if you find this not to be the case).

If you’ve switched to running ChefDK as your primary ruby environment for Chef development, please see https://github.com/opscode/chef-dk#using-chefdk-as-your-primary-development-environment as the change to user-mode gem installs for chef gem means that executables installed via chef gem will end up in your home directory now.

Thanks,

We’re working on this right now. I’m pretty close to getting the actual software to build on a VM, but we also need to add windows machines to the build cluster, update the MSI packaging code (what we do for chef-client right now is a bit of a hack and not extensible), possibly deal with automated test issues (won’t know about that until we get a working build), and do some manual verification (which could also find new bugs to fix).

Tl;dr, we don’t have an exact date, but it’s being actively worked on.

Love it! Great work guys.

Do you have a General Linux tarball ? Or even just how you build it?
I want to package this for ArchLinux, have the same setup as everyone else
for compliance.

We build it using https://github.com/opscode/omnibus-chef using this cookbook to prepare the machine: https://github.com/opscode-cookbooks/omnibus/ (mostly just build-essential).

We can’t just make a “general linux tarball” because the builds are tied to a particular version of libc that differs across distros.
