I just pushed another 0.10.6 beta release to rubygems.org. Since the last beta, we’ve addressed the following:
- Update only_if/not_if to use ShellOut. We have a much improved windows back end for ShellOut, so this should make only_if/not_if behave much better on Windows. As a bonus, you can now have multiple only_if/not_if conditionals on a resource.
- Fix a regression in the FreeBSD package provider
- Added a workaround for EOFErrors that occur when using SSL with multibyte characters on Ruby 1.9.x
You can see the changes on github here: https://github.com/opscode/chef/compare/0.10.6.beta.2...0.10.6.beta.3
As usual, we’ll do a full write-up when we ship the final release; until then you can see the list of resolved issues here:
If everything works out, we’ll ship an RC in a day or two. Please give this release a spin and let us know if you encounter any problems.
