Chef Management Console 2.0.0 Release

UPDATE (9/28/2015): The build for Manage 2.0.0 has been pulled after bugs were reported. We are quickly working on fixing the issue and will notify you when the new build is complete via our blog.

Manage 2.0.0 is now available from the Chef downloads site.

This release gets a major version bump from 1.21.1 to 2.0.0, with the most major change being that the package is now called “chef-manage” instead of “opscode-manage.”

It’s a major version bump because of the name change, but you shouldn’t find breaking changes or any major overhaul of the web interface.

This release is not currently running on hosted Chef, but is only available for on-premises installation. It will be deployed to hosted Chef soon.

The full change log is shown below.

Upgrading From Earlier Versions

When using Chef server 12.2.0 or earlier and running on Ubuntu, chef-server-ctl install opscode-manage will install a version prior to 2.0.0. To install the latest version, you must use apt-get install chef-manage.

When using Enterprise Linux, chef-server-ctl install opscode-manage will install the latest version of chef-manage.
