Updated Components

Known Issues

This release has the following issues:

  • Image Policy Webhook: If all webhook nodes or Pods are evicted by the cluster or scaled down, the admission policy blocks any Pods from being created in the cluster. To resolve the issue, the administrator needs to kubectl delete the Image Policy Webhook and reapply it once the cluster is stable.
  • When you use the Tanzu Developer Tools for VSCode extension, delete the workload before performing any of the following actions. This will avoid workload update errors.

    • Switching between the Live Update & Debug capabilities
    • Disabling Live Update & re-starting Live Update

    You can do so by performing the following steps: 1. Click the Terminal menu and select the Run Task option 2. Type tanzuWorkload delete in the command palette that appears and hit enter 3. View the Terminal tab to confirm that the Workload has been deleted

  • Tanzu App CLI Plugin:

    • tanzu apps workload get: passing in --output json along with and the --export flag will return YAML rather than JSON (support for honoring the --output json in conjunction with --export will be added in the next release).
    • tanzu apps workload create/update/apply: when the --wait flag has been included and the "Do you want to create this workload?" prompt is declined, the command continues to wait rather exit

Security Issues

This release has the following security issue:

  • In Learning Center, exported registry credentials are visible across namespaces: Because SecretExport CR allows you to export registry credentials to other namespaces, they are visible to users of those namespaces. VMware recommends that the registry credentials you export give read-only access to the registry and have minimal scope within the registry.
