Cookbook Releases 3/14


Ohai Chefs!

Happy “date that people relate to the mathematical constant π” day! :slight_smile:

We have a few cookbook releases to announce. Some of these are a week or so old but didn’t go out because finding mail in my drafts folder is hard.

Notable releases this week:

  1. Oracle Java will now install the latest version.
  2. The “users” cookbook now includes handling for “chef-solo-search” cookbook and Chef 11 attribute assignment.
  3. The runit cookbook will now update the “run” script if it’s changed.
