Chef 0.5.2 and Ohai 0.1.4 released

We contributed a lot of work to the latest Chef release, which made it out over the weekend. Most notably we got a lot of FreeBSD support in, and it looks like a few people are going to give that shot. The release notes are the best source of information about what was added. As we’re moving puppet recipes over to chef we stumble across pieces of configuration that we’d rather be a resource, and try to add that support. We’re really excited about what we’re getting into Ohai. I tested support that Ben Black is working on for reading libvirt data through their ruby API, and it’s just going to be awesome. With puppet+iclassify I had some convoluted ways of getting guest information, but this implementation is going to be first class enterprise stuff.
