1.8.1 / Not released yet

1.8.0 / 2015-07-15

Breaking changes:

  • Default mirror changed to "". This is the official successor of "" and should just work without changes. Thus no major version bump. (GH-17)


  • Allow using backports-sloppy repository on Debian 7.0 wheezy. (GH-18)


  • Fix compatibility with apt cookbook 2.7.0 and newer using glob for apt_preference. Requires apt cookbook 1.9.0 or later. (GH-16)

Bug fixes:

  • backports_sloppy should always include the backports recipe. (GH-19)

1.7.2 / 2014-08-22


  • Loosen the apt cookbook requirement to accept all 2.x versions, as v2.5.2 fixes GH-15. So apt cookbook versions 2.5.0 and 2.5.1 are broken, earlier and later ones should work fine.

1.7.0 / 2014-08-13


  • Notifications of the debian_repository resource require Chef 11 or newer.



  • Use use_inline_resources in the provider to ensure correct notification behavior.
  • Lock down apt cookbook requirement to < 2.5.0 as it removed/renamed the execute[apt-get update] resource. (GH-15)

Bug fixes:

  • Fix pin line in apt preferences

1.5.0 / 2013-05-20

  • On squeeze use default mirror with /debian-backports suffix for backports repository (GH-7)

  • Add backports_sloppy recipe for squeeze-backports-sloppy suite (GH-8)

1.4.0 / 2013-05-14
