Cookbook Releases, all 12's edition

Ohai, Chefs!

Some people appreciate the humor in the 12-12-12 date, others don’t, but
that doesn’t mean I won’t make a reference to it for this. We have a bunch
of cookbook releases from the last week or so. Before we get to that,
we’re down to 0 “Fix provided” COOK tickets, and even better, 0 “Fix
reviewed” COOK tickets. However, that does mean we have 111 “Fix
committed” tickets, which are the tickets we’ve merged, that need to be
fully released (tested, posted to the community site, and posted to the
mailing list like I am doing now).

A few of these cookbooks will have releases again soon, due to fixes that
were submitted and merged this week since the last release.

Thanks, you’re all awesome!
