[Pre-Release Announcement] Chef 12.13.30

Hello Chefs!

Check out the Chef 12.13.30 release candidate, intended for release next week!

This build has a number of changes, including Ruby 2.1.9 and Ohai 8.18. Ohai 8.18 in particular includes a new plugin for gathering available user shells. Additionally for OS X users there is a new hardware plugin that gathers system information, and we’ve added detection of VMware and VirtualBox installations. The changelog is here: we’ll be polishing it over the next few days before the final release.

This build can be downloaded from current:

curl https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.sh | sudo bash -s -- -c current -P chef -v 12.13.30


. { iwr -useb https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.ps1 } | iex; install -channel current -project chef -version 12.13.30

Please let us know if you encounter any issues while using this build and we will address them prior to the official release.


FYI, we found an issue in 12.13.27 and have put up a fix in 12.13.30, which is the new candidate. The original announcement has been updated to reflect this. Please give the new one a try!
