Enterprise Chef 11.3.0 Release

In January we released Chef analytics 1.1 which added some great new features including

* a flexible rules engine for notifications
* inline diffs in the actions view
* a new webhook notification destination

At the time of the release, Chef analytics relied upon features only available in Chef Server 12.

We’re really excited by these features in Chef analytics and want to make them available to customers who haven’t yet migrated to Chef Server 12. Therefore we’ve back ported the required changes from Chef Server 12 to Enterprise Chef 11, so you can use Chef analytics 1.1.x with Enterprise Chef 11. The upgrade path is straight forward if you’re already on Chef analytics 1.0.0 or higher and requires 2 steps:

* Upgrade your Enterprise Chef Server to version 11.3.0
* Upgrade your Analytics Server to version 1.1.1

A web page detailing all the new features in Chef Analytics can be found here.
