Important note for this release

This version no longer installs Ruby bindings in the client recipe by default. Use the ruby recipe if you'd like the RubyGem. If you'd like packages from your distribution, use them in your application's specific cookbook/recipe, or modify the client packages attribute. This resolves the following tickets:

  • COOK-932
  • COOK-1009
  • COOK-1384

Additionally, this cookbook now has tests (COOK-1439) for use under test-kitchen.
