We’re pleased to announce the release of ChefDK 0.9 today, which you can obtain via our downloads page. This release is primarily to upgrade the embedded version of Chef Client to 12.5, which is being released today. You can read about the new features in Chef Client 12.5 in a companion blog post.
In addition to the Chef Client upgrade and the usual bug fixes, ChefDK 0.9 makes it easier for you to customize the cookbook generator by providing a
chef generate generator command. This command will create a generator (archetype) cookbook that you can customize and use as a starting point for additional cookbooks to be generated using the ChefDK.
We hope you enjoy using ChefDK 0.9 to explore the new features in Chef Client 12.5. As usual, if you have feedback on how we can continue to improve, please visit our feedback forum. Thanks for using Chef!
