Release Date: August 20, 2020


New features and changes in this release:

  • Operators can specify which TLS versions to make Redis TLS connections when TLS is enabled: This feature allows control of the versions of TLS that Redis connections support. VMware does not recommend using TLS v1.0, but it is an option for apps that only support this protocol. For more information, see Configure On-Demand Service Settings.

  • Operators see an error when trying to install an incompatible Healthwatch version: Operators can only install Healthwatch v1.8 and later with the Redis for Tanzu Application Service tile. If the operator tries to install a previous Healthwatch version, the operator sees an error.

  • Operators can enable telemetry to help improve the product: The telemetry program enables VMware to collect data from customer installations to improve the enterprise experience. Collecting data at scale enables VMware to identify patterns and alert you to warning signals in your installation. For more information, see Pivotal Telemetry.

Resolved Issues

This release has the following fix:

  • Rotating the Services TLS CA certificate no longer causes app downtime: In Redis for PCF v2.2 and Redis for Pivotal Platform v2.3, following the Rotating the Services TLS CA and Its Leaf Certificates procedure can cause downtime for apps bound to the Redis service. This issue does not occur in Redis for Tanzu Application Service.

Known Issues

This release has the following issue:

  • Service creation can fail when using an external UAA: An issue with the Redis on-demand service broker and TLS verification means that service creation might fail on the TLS handshake. This has been observed as the upgrade-all-service-instances errand failing, particularly when a separate internal load balancer is present.
