Chef 0.8.4 Release

A mere day and some change behind Chef 0.8.2 comes the piping hot Chef 0.8.4!

This releases MVP is Tollef Fog Heen, who realized that the validation and web-ui keys were being created with an insecure file permission. His patch fixes that going forward, but make sure you set any existing validation and web-ui keys to 0600! Thanks for looking out for us, Tollef.

We’ll see you all at 0.8.6!
