VMware Tanzu Data Solutions
VMware Postgres for VMware Tanzu® Application Service™
●  This release has only one known issue

○  In the Tanzu Operations Manager Installation Dashboard, the operator navigates to the Postgres tile’s configuration page. In the Settings tab, in the Assign AZs and networks section, if the operator changes the subnet names, and then clicks Apply changes; then, this new setting does not have any effect on the re-deployed service instances. The service instances continue to use the old subnet. If the old subnet no longer exists, the re-deployment fails.

●  Postgres now supports S3-compatible backup. The endpoint URL is now used for s3-backup configuration.

●  This release includes the following security fixes: 

○        name: golang-runtime | version: 1.21.3 CVE-2023-45285

VMware Tanzu Platform Spring Essentials
Spring Cloud Services for VMware Tanzu
●  Known Issues

○  Spring Cloud Services v3.2 requires more disk space, make sure the VM has the minimum 12GB disk space

○  Spring Cloud Services v3.2.2 and earlier may leak proxy credentials in Mirror Service VM logs

■   When a proxy is used with a username+password in a git repository URL, where that git repository also uses username:password access in the URL, the proxy username:password credentials are visible at log level INFO in the Mirror Service VM logs.

■   This issue can be resolved by changing the Mirror Service log level to WARN or ERROR. Upgrading to SCS 3.2.3 will remove any username:password combination in a source repository URL
