Ohai Chefs!

I’m happy to let everyone know that we are prepping to get a new release of ChefDK out shortly!

We’ll be updating the changelog soon to reflect the commits that make this release possible, but some of the most notable changes include:

  • Test-Kitchen 1.8.0 with the ability to run winrm commands from a scheduled task and improved policy file support
  • Adding additional tools such as: git, delivery CLI, and a push jobs client
  • Cookstyle linter

You will find more information on some of these features in the release notes.

You can use the following commands to install the builds:

Linux and OS/X:

curl https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.sh | sudo bash -s -- -c current -P chefdk -v 0.14.25

Windows: open up a Powershell command prompt as Administrator, and type:

Please report any issues found to the chef-dk github page, under Issues.
