Ohai Chefs,

This morning we announced security releases [1] of all the Chef Server products that Chef-software supports. Among these products is the Release Candidate for Chef Server 12. This new release candidate contains further changes beyond the security patches, so I'd like to talk about those changes:

Bug Fixes:

[#461 / #475] - Chef Server 12 refuses Chef Client 12 requests. This issue had a remediation via configuration values, but we've bumped the default maximum Chef Client version allowed to 13 until we can implement the more desired client restriction logic as discussed in #461.

Security Fixes:

[#481] - Package ownership issues on Debian-based platforms that result in Omnibus-built packages installing with contents owned by UID and GID 999 or 1001.


- Server version returned from HTTP headers changed from 11.1 to 12
- Notification messages added to `chef-server-ctl reconfigure` and `chef-server-ctl install` commands to make it clear when premium feature packages have been installed.

As always, if you run into any issues with this release you can either:
