Chef Software on macOS Catalina

After today (Feb 3, 2020), Apple requires notarization for all software installed on macOS Catalina. Chef has been working to make sure our software is compatible with these required changes and we expect little to no customer impact. You will see these changes roll out starting today for Chef Workstation.

Our other Chef products will include these changes in their next scheduled release, according to their respective normal release cadence. You can also find the upcoming changes in each product’s current channel if you want to get a head start in testing. 

This kind of change can be hard to test for all usage scenarios, so there may be some impact if we have missed something. If you run into any problems, please reach out on our Chef Community Slack or contact your Chef Software support representative. We are here to help and want to make this transition as painless as possible.
