  • Services Toolkit now integrates with Amazon RDS using the ACK Operator. See Consuming AWS RDS on Tanzu Application Platform with AWS Controllers for Kubernetes (ACK).

  • Services Toolkit now integrates with Amazon RDS by using Crossplane. See Consuming AWS RDS on Tanzu Application Platform with Crossplane.

  • New ClusterInstanceClass supports service instance abstraction. It is available using tanzu service classes list in v0.3.0 of the Services plug-in for Tanzu CLI.

  • You can now use the InstanceQuery API to discover claimable resources. It is available using tanzu service claimable list --class CLASS in v0.3.0 of the Services plug-in for Tanzu CLI.

  • ResourceClaims no longer mutate service resources with an annotation to mark a claimed resource. Instead it uses Kubernetes Leases.

  • ResourceClaims no longer require the update permission when adding new service resources to Tanzu Application Platform.

  • ResourceClaims now aggregate on ClusterRoles for service resources with the standard "true" label from the Service Binding specification for Kubernetes This label is recommended over the existing "true" label, although the old label continues to work as expected.

  • Performance enhancements to ResourceClaim controller tracker.

  • All Services Toolkit components now conform to Tanzu Application Platform logging standards.

  • Deprecation warning: tanzu service types list and tanzu service instances list commands are now deprecated. These commands are hidden from help text but remain functional if invoked. VMware intends to support these commands for either two additional minor releases (v0.6.0 of the CLI plug-in) or after one year (2023-07-12), whichever comes later. VMware recommends using tanzu service class and tanzu service claimable commands in place of tanzu service type and tanzu service instance from now on.

Bug Fixes

  • ResourceClaims no longer overwrite existing secrets on cross namespace claims.
  • Fix ResourceClaims incorrectly logging resource requests as part of tracking.
  • ResourceClaims .status.ClaimedResourceRef.Namespace is now set for same namespace claims.


Release Date: April 12, 2022

Release Date: January 11, 2022
