I just merged the pull request for COOK-1820, which removes all the
deprecated recipes from Opscode’s “application” cookbook. The version is
updated to 1.0.5, though the next “Released” version of the cookbook will
be 2.0.0. That is pending some discussion about COOK-1673.
What this means for you:
If you’re using the application cookbook’s recipes (with the data bags for
applications), and you have version 1.0.4, do not update to the latest
master branch. I’d recommend pinning your cookbook version with the
equality operator until such time as you have converted your application
deployment to use the application* cookbooks LWRPs. For example,
environments/production.rb would have:
name "production" cookbook_versions "application" => "= 1.0.4"
The next release of the cookbook will be version 2.0.0. The "sub resource"
cookbooks (application_ruby, application_php, etc) do not have any
specific changes related to this, so their versions will not have a major
We’ll send out an announcement to the lists again when the next version
has been released.
