Release: Chef Client 11.14.6 & Ohai 7.2.4

Ohai Chefs,

Today we have released a patch release, 11.14.6, for Chef Client with some regression fixes and enhancements. We needed to skip 11.14.4 since we’ve realized that a couple of fixes slipped through the cracks and wasn’t included in 11.14.4 after tagging.

Huge thanks to Rory Savage, Hugo Lopes Tavares, Zuhaib Siddique, Alex Slynko, Phil Dibowitz, Matt Mencel & Tim Smith for trying out our recent 11.14.2 release, reporting these regressions, working with us to fix them and making this release happen. Thanks for making Chef solid for all!

Here is the complete list of changes:

* Fix a regression on the environment resource on windows.
* Fix RPM package version detection.
* Ensure negative duration values are not reported for Chef Actions.
* Add password management support for Mac 10.7, 10.8 & 10.9.
* Fix a regression around freebsd_package on Chefspec.
* http_proxy and related config vars no longer clobber already set ENV vars
* all http_proxy configs now set lowercase + uppercase versions of ENV vars
* https\_proxy / ftp\_proxy support setting `http://` URLs (and whatever mix and match makes sense)

This release also includes Ohai 7.2.4 with following bug fixes.

* **Phil Dibowitz**:
Use lsblk instead of blkid if available.
* **Phil Dibowitz**:
linux::filesystem now reads all of /proc/mounts instead of just 4K
* **Phil Dibowitz**:
linux::network should handle ECMP routes

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

curl -L | sudo bash -s — -v 11.14.6
