Upgrade Note

Apache Geode v1.13.2, which was first supported in VMware Tanzu GemFire for VMs version 1.13.1, included a fix for issue GEODE-8799, providing a performance improvement by increasing the defaults for maximum number of pooled message processor threads and maximum partitioned region message processor threads.
