[Pre-Announcement]Chef-Client v12.11.18 release

We are considering yesterday’s 12.11.18 build our release candidate chef-client due for release next week. We are polishing the changelog here where you can find the details of what’s inside. This includes a few RFC enhancements that have been in public discussion:

This build can be downloaded from current:

https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.sh | sudo bash -s -- -c current -P chef -v 12.11.18

or

. { iwr -useb https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.ps1 } | iex; install -channel current -project chef -v 12.11.18

Please let us know if you encounter any issues while using these builds and we will address them prior to an official release.

Thanks!
Matt

Hi Matt,

I’m not sure this is the right place to report issues, but our test builds started failing with packer + chef-solo on EC2 with the latest release.

I’ve had issues with vagrant since the release as well. Part of the problem is that vagrant-omnibus installs 12.11.18 even if you tell it to install say 12.9.41… it’ll even say it’s installing 12.9.41 but it actually installs 12.11.18. And that fails due to the chef-solo/chef-zero issues. I plan on opening a bug on vagrant-omnibus about the wrong version, but it would be nice to figure out why it fails on the new version. I’ll see if I can set up a test Vagrantfile to repro the issue.

Yeah this could be fallout from the changes to chef-solo in this release. This is now the “official” release so please follow up with issues on github. Thanks!
