Platform Release Notes

Curious what’s new that you might find helpful as a cloud.gov application developer? Here are highlights from our platform updates over the past two weeks.

Added

  • New dashboard features:
    • On an application page, you can now edit the number of application instances, instance memory, and disk quota.
    • Org and space level views now include a quick overview of the health of application instances.

Changed

  • We upgraded Cloud Foundry (the underlying open source project that powers cloud.gov) to Release v249 (see also Release v248), which includes updates to buildpacks and improvements for internal components.
  • Changes in Cloud Foundry require an upgrade to the latest version of the command line interface (CLI) client (cf) in order for cf logs to work properly. Please upgrade your local version to the latest version (installation instructions).

Fixed

  • The latest Cloud Foundry command line interface client (available here) addresses an issue where inspecting application logs returned errors.
  • We updated the cloud.gov account creation form to include previously-missing information about password requirements.

Security

The Cloud Foundry upgrade included updates for the base filesystem used for running your application, addressing several security vulnerabilities in that filesystem. You can restage your application to ensure you incorporate fixes in the base filesystem and are running the most recent language version supported by your buildpack.
