No significant issues are reported for it so we’ve decided to include it in the next Chef Client release (11.12.0) which will be available around ChefConf.
Today we have released an alpha version of Chef Client that includes Ohai 7.0.0 Release Candidate to make it easier for you to test and see if it impacts your environment.
As usual you can get this version for Non-Windows platforms with:
curl -L https://www.opscode.com/chef/install.sh | sudo bash -s -- -p
and for Windows you can download it from here.
Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or problems.
