+Important Changes Since Chef 0.8
  2
+================================
  3
+
  4
+  When upgrading from Chef 0.8.x to 0.9.x, be aware of a couple important changes.
  5
+
  6
+    * 0.9 clients can read from 0.8 servers, but cannot save to 0.8 servers.
  7
+    * 0.8 clients cannot read or save from / to 0.9 servers.
  8
+    * The cookbook upload method is changed and cookbooks have to be
  9
+      uploaded to the server again.
  10
+
  11
+  First, upgrade the server packages. Then upgrade the clients.
  12
+
  13
+  Once the server is upgraded, cookbooks need to be uploaded again. Typically
  14
+  this is done from the Chef Repository (chef-repo) with knife. If the Chef
  15
+  Server is where the repository is located, simply:
  16
+
  17
+      knife cookbook upload -a
  18
+
  19
+  In the local chef-repo directory. If the repo is on another workstation,
  20
+  then upgrade Chef there and run the knife command, above.
  21
+
  22
+  Two new configuration values are added to the server.rb:
  23
+
  24
+    * sandbox_path
  25
+    * checksum_path
  26
+
  27
+  Which are used for the new cookbook upload scheme.
