AWS OpsWorks now supports Chef 11.10

Posted on: Mar 27, 2014

We are pleased to announce that AWS OpsWorks now supports Chef 11.10.

This release of Chef:

  • Improves compatibility with cookbooks written for Chef Server, including support for features such as search and databags, making it easier for you to use community cookbooks such as those written for MongoDB (see our new blog post, Deploying MongoDB With OpsWorks, to learn more about this use case).
  • Includes support for Berkshelf so you can easily reference multiple cookbook repositories. You can now easily use community cookbooks and your own custom cookbooks in the same stack.
  • Uses Ruby 2.0 for Chef recipe execution.

To get started, create a stack. You can choose the Chef version you would like to use under Advanced settings and whether to use Berkshelf. To learn more and see examples, see our documentation.
