[Pre-Release Announcement] Chef Client 64 bit Windows Builds Available

Hi all,

We made a few changes in our release infrastructure over the last couple of days and now 64 bit windows builds for Chef Client are available in the “current” channel on omnitruck. They will not be available in the “stable” channel for a while but new builds will continue to be added to the “current” channel.

You can use the powershell command below to get them and try them out:

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

-Tyler (& Serdar)

NOTE: Due to a minor issue, above command will always install 64 bit versions of windows, even when run from a 32-bit system. We are working on a fix for this. Meanwhile make sure you use this command only on 64-bit systems.
