knife in chef-dk on ruby 2.1.5 is actually busted on windows because of it being bumped to 2.1.5:


the speed increases are good but until those problems get solved we can't ship 2.1.x or 2.2.x in chef-client (and i mentioned the possibility that we need to roll back ruby in chef-dk if we can't solve the segfaults in 2.1.5 on windows)

Hi all,


On my Windows machine, the ChefDK 0.6.2 installer also installs Chef-Client 12.3.0 with Ruby 2.1.5:


C:\opscode\chefdk\embedded\bin>ruby -v

ruby 2.1.5p273 (2014-11-13 revision 48405) [i386-mingw32]


However the Chef-Client 12.3.0 (and I tried the latest 12.4.1) omnibus installer is still shipping with Ruby 2.0.0:


C:\opscode\chef\embedded\bin>ruby -v

ruby 2.0.0p451 (2014-02-24) [i386-mingw32]


The speed difference is significant on my machine (2.1.5 being much faster) so I wondered if there were plans to bring Ruby 2.1.5 into the omnibus installer soon or if there is a blocking issue doing so?
