In May this year, we made an announcement that the release of Chef Infra Client 18 would temporarily depart from the historical cadence. The purpose of this was to allow us time to collaborate with our users on developing a newer, more inclusive release process. We promised that a Release Candidate would be made available for testing prior to making Infra Client 18 available for adoption. We are happy to share that the RC (Release Candidate) is now available for you to get a preview of what is coming in Infra Client 18.
We encourage you to try the RC (18.0.155) and provide us with valuable feedback. Feel free to reach out to us through slack channels, discourse, or any Chef representative to log your feedback. Kindly watch out for future announcements about us taking Infra Client 18 live. The past couple of months have been a wonderful opportunity for us to work together with our user community for gathering invaluable feedback that we hope has made the build robust. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this process. We are compiling all of the feedback and will be posting the new release process shortly.
