Hi Chefs,

Since we announced the 11.6 Release Candidate, we’ve been busy running
test scenarios to verify new features and bug fixes. This round of
testing is complete, and we’ve released a new RC with a handful of
fixes. Unless any new issues are found, this RC will become the 11.6.0
release. If you’ve been wondering how you can contribute to Chef,
testing this release in your environment is a great way to help out.
