[Release Announcement] Ohai 8.9.0 released

Hi all -

Just a quick note that we have released Ohai 8.9.0 to RubyGems.

It will be integrated into the next release of Chef Client.

Among the changes to note: the linux/network plugin has been refactored to support setting ipaddress, macaddress, and ip6address on ipv6 only systems. This should not change your results on systems with both IP stacks, as ipv4 is still preferred at this time.

Please see the CHANGELOG for the full list of changes - https://github.com/chef/ohai/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
