ChefDK 1.0.3 Released

Ohai Chefs!

We’re happy to announce the release of ChefDK 1.0.3! The decision to promote ChefDK to 1.0 was made with input from
the community at the 2016 Seattle Community Summit, as a reflection of ChefDK’s maturity and stability.

Release Highlights

Version 1.0!

  • Recognize ChefDK’s continued stability with the honor of a 1.0 tag. There is
    nothing in this release that breaks backwards compatibility with previous
    installations of ChefDK: it is simply a formal recognition of the stability of
    the product.


  • Foodcritic constraint updated to require v8.0 or greater.
  • Supermarket Foodcritic rules are now disabled by default when you run chef generate cookbook.


  • The inspec command is now included in the PATH managed by ChefDK. Just run
    chef shell-init to update your PATH!

Please see the for the complete list of changes.
