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

  • You can now create S3 service keys to get direct access to your cloud.gov S3 buckets.

Changed

  • We upgraded Cloud Foundry (the underlying open source project that powers cloud.gov) to Release v250, which includes updates to buildpacks and improvements for internal components.

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.
