The new version 1.1.0 allows you to specify a custom user per application. Before this, all applications would be deployed with one single deploy user.
In the future, we will use the basics of this feature to be able to have truly multi-tenant servers. Which means that you can give some people deploy access to specific applications on a single server. Which is awesome.
Check out the release notes and the README on GitHub for more information.
We aim to make this collection of recipes as easy as possible for anyone in the Rails development community to use; even if you do not know Chef. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to post an issue or send an email.
