Added

  • breaking change all services: Add new IaaS configuration property iaas.cf.skip_ssl_validation. This property can be used to skip the validation of the Cloud Foundry (CF) certificate when communicating with CF.

This new property replaces the iaas.cf_service_guard.skip_ssl_validation and iaas.sso-proxy.skip_ssl_validation properties. The value of the iaas.cf.skip_ssl_validation property should be set to the value of the removed properties.

  • a9s Elasticsearch: End of Support: Terminate support, starting from anynines deployment v49.0.0 (expected end of May 2024), for the following deprecated a9s Data Service versions:

    • a9s Elasticsearch 5
    • a9s Elasticsearch 6
    • a9s Elasticsearch 7

    The creation of new a9s Data Service instances for these deprecated versions will be disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we will not provide regular support for these versions. The corresponding documentation will also be removed.

    Although we will not intentionally break running instances of these unsupported versions, it cannot be guaranteed that they still work as expected after an update to v49.0.0.

  • a9s Messaging: Deprecation: Prepare for the upcoming deprecation phase, planned for the release v49.0.0 (expected end of May), of the following a9s Data Service versions:

    • a9s Messaging 3.7
    • a9s Messaging 3.8

    Please ensure that you organize the migration of your existing instances to a more up-to-date version of the same a9s Data Service:

    • for a9s Messaging: a9s Messaging 3.10 and 3.12 are available as GA versions

    The deprecation phase is planned to last until v55.0.0 (expected end of November 2024), in which the deprecated versions will become unsupported. The creation of new a9s Data Service instances for these particular versions will then be disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we will not provide regular support for these versions. The corresponding documentation will also be removed. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you start your migrations to a supported GA version as soon as possible and complete them until the end of the deprecation phase.

Upcoming

  • a9s MariaDB: End of Support: Terminate support, starting from anynines deployment v44.0.0 (expected end of December 2023), for the following deprecated a9s Data Service version:

    • a9s MariaDB 10.1

    The creation of new a9s Data Service instances for this deprecated version will be disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we will not provide regular support for this version. The corresponding documentation will also be removed.

    Although we will not intentionally break running instances of this unsupported version, it cannot be guaranteed that they will still work as expected after an update to v44.0.0.
