Cookbook Releases, Labor Day 2012 Edition


#1

Ohai Chefs!

We have another batch of cookbook releases for you. We continue to add
support for test-kitchen (and minitest) to our cookbooks to help with
testing. We are also still working through the backlog of tickets that
have been merged but haven’t been released in their respective
cookbooks. As of today, we’re down to 41 "COOK tickets merged and
ready for release"0, from over 100 a couple weeks ago. Thank you for
your contributions and patience!

You may notice that some cookbooks listed below are now at 1.0 when
they were previously 0.X.Y releases. Generally, we release a cookbook
as “version 1.0” if it is feature complete, or it doesn’t have major
unresolved breaking bugs.
