ChefDK 0.5.0 Release Incoming


#1

Greetings!

After many, many RCs I am beginning the ChefDK 0.5.0 release process. First, I will release the ChefDK 0.5.0 gem and then I will begin the Omnibus build/release process. As that is occurring I will format and prep the blog post. Upon successful Omnibus release I will post the blog which will contain deeper examples than the CHANGELOG does.

I’m holding off on the blog post because I want to make sure the release (and testing) is successful before widely announcing availability. But I also wanted to give a heads up to anyone with an automated build system that the 0.5.0 release is imminent - so thats what this email is!

Cheers!

The release has finished! The blog post which highlights changes can be seen at https://www.chef.io/blog/2015/04/30/chefdk-0-5-0-released/

Note to OSX users: If you use the version of chef-client (12.2.1) packaged in the ChefDK to converge your workstation, you probably don’t want to update. There is a bug in chef-client 12.2.1 which uses the macports package provider instead of the homebrew package provider. This has been fixed in chef-client 12.3.0 and I am immediately working on a ChefDK 0.5.1 release which includes this updated chef-client version.

Greetings!

I just released ChefDK 0.5.1. This contains a fix for a chef diffbug which was causing an undefined_method error. It also increases the chef-client version from 12.2.1 to 12.3.0.

It should be available on the download page soon.

Cheers!
