Spiceweasel 2.0

Just wanted to let folks know that Spiceweasel 2.0 is now available. For those of you who may be unfamiliar, Spiceweasel generates knife commands from a simple JSON or YAML manifest. It also now has the ability to execute that manifest for you and to extract a manifest from an existing Chef repo. For more info:

Why would you want this? It allows you to track all of your cookbooks, roles, environments, data bags and nodes in a file that may be managed with version control so you can recreate and share the infrastructure described by the repo.

The updates to the manifest syntax are here:
and the detailed changelog is here:
