Cookbook Releases 9/17


Ohai Chefs,

As I mentioned in the email to the lists yesterday, we have now closed all the pull requests in the monolithic “opscode/cookbooks” repository in favor of the individual cookbook repositories under the “opscode-cookbooks” GitHub organization. Also, we’re down to 11 tickets in “COOK tickets merged and ready for release” search filter at

We have a large number of Opscode cookbook releases for you today. Before I get to the list, I’d like to thank Mike Fiedler for his excellent “knife community release” plugin, which streamlines the several steps we take in releasing our cookbooks. You can read about it in the blog post, and at the project page. Thanks Mike!

And now, the cookbooks released in the last week or so. Thank you everyone who contributed changes!
