### Reminder

We have had some conversations about the supported Chef versions in the approaching major release Chef 12 with our community. As a result, we’ve decided to drop support for Chef Client 10 this October when Chef Client 12 ships.

We will continue to ship Chef Client 10 with contributions and required security fixes until **12/31/2014**. If you want to get more information about this and Chef 12 check out the recently approved Chef RFC here.
