Chef Habitat 1.6.500

We are announcing the release of Habitat 1.6.500. This release provides the following fixes and enhancements:

  • We have added validation to hab sup run to reject service specific arguments if you are not starting a service with hab sup run. For example, hab sup run --strategy at-once will fail because no service is provided. However, hab sup run core/nginx --strategy at-once will succeed because you have provided a service (nginx) to run.
  • More sophisticated backoff delay periods governing service restarts for failed init and run hooks. See the docs for a complete explanation on how to use this feature.

Please read on for all the details.
Thanks for using Habitat!

Chef Habitat 1.6.477

We are announcing the release of Habitat 1.6.477. This release provides the following fixes and enhancements:

  • Fixes an issue where the supervisor failed to run in a docker studio on Mac M1 hardware
  • Adds a --sandbox argument to hab bldr channel list allowing all channels including hidden sandbox channels to be shown. This can be helpful when trying to delete all channels in an origin.
  • Ensure the version of powershell that is used by habitat hooks sits in the front of the PSModulePath so that the correct modules will be imported by the hook.

Please read on for all the details.

Thanks for using Habitat!
