VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs [Windows] v2.11 Release Notes

Page last updated:

This topic contains release notes for VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs [Windows] v2.11.

Because VMware uses the Percona Distribution for MySQL, expect a time lag between Oracle releasing a MySQL patch and VMware releasing TAS for VMs [Windows] containing that patch.

Warning: Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later include a version of tar that is incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. For more information, see Windows Stemcell v2019.44 is Incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and Earlier below.

Before you install the tile, refer to the Windows Stemcell Compatibility Matrix.

2.11.15

Release Date: 06/23/2022

Warning: Upcoming breaking changes! In future patches, no sooner than July 1st 2022, some components will become more strict about the protocols used in TLS communications, causing integrations with systems using older, insecure protocols to fail. Specifically, components using the Go programming language will be updated to Go 1.18, and will no longer support TLS 1.0 and 1.1 connections or certificates with a SHA-1 checksum. This is most likely to affect connections with external databases. However, the pre-existing configuration for “TLS versions supported by the Gorouter” will still work. This change may not arrive all at once, as Go is used in systems throughout TAS. There will be a VMware Knowledge Base article about this change published prior to the changes rolling out. These changes will be clearly designated in the release notes of the versions they ship in; a version of this warning will appear on all patch versions until we are confident no systems remain to be updated.

2.11.14

Release Date: 06/09/2022

Warning: Breaking change. This version contains Diego 2.64.0, which bumps to Go 1.18. Go 1.18 no longer supports TLS 1.0 and 1.1 connections or certificates with a SHA-1 checksum. This is most likely to affect connections with external databases. We stated earlier that we wouldn’t bump to Go 1.18 until July 1, 2022. This TAS release with Diego 2.64.0 breaks that promise. We apologize. We are rolling back to Diego 2.62.0. If you already successfully deployed to this TAS release with Diego 2.64.0, then you are safe to continue using it.

  • Bump diego to version 2.64.0

How to Upgrade

The TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11 tile is available with the release of Ops Manager v2.10. For more information, see the Ops Manager documentation.

To use the TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11 tile, you must install Ops Manager v2.10 and VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) v2.11 or later.

New Features in TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11

There are no new features in this release of TAS for VMs [Windows].

Breaking Changes

TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11 includes the following breaking change:

Global Log Rate Limit is Deprecated

The global log rate limit that measures app log rates in lines per second is deprecated in favor of per-app log rate limits that measure app log rates in bytes per second.

If you have configured a global log rate limit in lines per second, VMware recommends that you re-configure your apps to use log rate limits in bytes per second.

If you still want to use the global log rate limit, logs that exceed the log rate limit are immediately dropped. Previously, logs that exceeded the log rate limit were buffered and released at the configured log rate.

For more information about app log rate limits, see App Log Rate Limiting.

Known Issues

TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11 includes the following known issues:

Upgrades Fail When the Stemcell Does Not Change

If you upgrade to a version of TAS for VMs [Windows] that uses the same stemcell, TAS for VMs [Windows] can fail to create containers, causing the deployment to fail. If there are stemcell changes or if the Microsoft base layer changes, this error is unlikely to occur.

For more information, see Failure to create containers when upgrading with shared Microsoft base image in the VMware Tanzu Knowledge Base.

Smoke Tests Fail when Isolation Segment in Foundation

The Smoke Test errand runs extra, failing tests when TAS for VMs [Windows] is deployed with Isolation Segment. They are “Compute isolation disabled” and “Application Workflow Linux Applications”.

To work around this issue, disable Smoke Tests. For more information, see Windows Tile smoke-tests fails for isolation segment segments in the VMware Tanzu Knowledge Base.

Windows Stemcell v2019.44 is Incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and Earlier

Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later include a newer version of tar that is incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. TAS for VMs [Windows] deployments that use Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later cannot untar winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. Compatible Windows stemcells for this winfs2019-release include v2019.0 through v2019.43.
