I just released version 1.3.0 of the vagrant-omnibus Vagrant plugin. You
can upgrade to the latest version by running:
vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus
This version includes a couple of exciting changes:
- Initial Windows guest support.
- Delayed Chef version string validation.
#1 is self-explanatory but #2 benefits from some background information.
vagrant-omnibus previously took advantage of the Vagrant plugin API’s
config validation hook  to ensure a user-provided Chef version mapped to
an actual Chef version. It also transformed a human-friendly version of
"latest" to a real Chef version during this validation.
This config validation hook has one undesirable side-effect: all Vagrant
commands would fail if a host internet connection does not exist. This
occurs for a couple of reasons:
- vagrant-omnibus queries Rubygems.org during the Chef version validations
- Vagrant performs config validation for ALL plugins at EVERY "vagrant"
This undesirable behavior has been fixed by delaying all vagrant-omnibus
validations until the execution of the actual “install Chef” action which
hooks after all Vagrant provision actions.
See the project CHANGELOG  for more details.
