Howdy folks! Thanks for joining me for another community meeting.

Let’s kick things off with a few updates from DevRel:

If you’re looking for some good reading check out our latest blog posts:
Making use of InSpec Azure Cloud Resource
Chef Infra Client 18 RC Now Available for Testing

Just in case you didn’t catch it in #announcements:
Downloads are moving, but **knife**, **mixlib-install**, and the Omnitruck APIs are not being impacted at all by these changes. The Go Live date has been pushed back. The powers that be are still hashing out the details, but rest assured as soon as I know the new date, I’ll communicate it to the group.

Mark your calendars, the next Community Advisory Council meeting is next Thursday, October 13th directly after the Community Meeting.

Chef Inspec

Not much to say. we've been helping out with a couple of customer bugs, but mainly the InSpec team has been occupied with an internal project.

Sous Chefs

Hello from Sous Chefs!

Here's the list of new releases in the past week:

  • lvm - 6.1.1: Fix parsing of output from blkid in libraries/provider_lvm_logical_volume.rb due to different behavior under busybox (e.g., running in hab effortless)
  • lvm - 6.1.2: Update chef-ruby-lvm-attrib gem to 0.3.11
  • unbound - 3.0.1: Add missing fallback-enable setting to config_authority_zone

We also did some upgrades in our auto-release infrastructure which we think is working (I will be checking on that later today)
