Release: Chef Client 11.12.2

Ohai folks,

We have had 3 regressions for the Chef Client 11.12.0 release that we’ve shipped on Tuesday:

  • CHEF-5198 – Content Length Mismatch against gzip url
  • CHEF-5199 – Unable to preform cookbook upload with any cookbook that has “return” in it.
  • OHAI-562 – Reloading v6 plugins in chef fails (a.k.a. OHAI-555)

In order to resolve these issues we have just released Chef Client 11.12.2 and Ohai 7.0.2.

As usual you can get this release with our install script on non-windows platforms:

curl -L | sudo bash -s -- -v 11.12.2

You can download the Windows release using this link:

We will be doing a post-mortem about this incident and will post the summary with the upcoming mitigations to prevent these kind of regressions in the future on our blog.

Sorry for all the trouble these regressions have caused folks. If you see any issues feel free to reach out to us.
