  • Initialization of Github V2 backed projects (delivery init --github). Requires Chef Automate server version 0.5.432 or above.
  • Project name verification with repository name for projects with SCM Integration.
  • Increased clarity of the command structure by introducing the --pipeline alias for the --for option.
