Sonatype Nexus Repository 3.60.0   
Bug Fixes    
NEXUS-4014: Fixed the previously reported Repair - Reconcile component database from blob store task issue. The bug caused the task to soft-delete the blob .properties and .bytes files for NuGet v2 proxy and hosted repositories. It also failed to restore the desired content for RubyGems, NuGet v2 (proxy or hosted), or P2 repositories; however, there was no soft deletion associated with RubyGems or P2 repositories.

NEXUS-39918: Clarified search restrictions in high availability environments to explain that searches cannot begin with a special character followed by a wildcard. Attempts to perform such seareches will now result in appropriate descriptive messaging.

NEXUS-39825: NuGet v3 search now returns the complete list of component versions even when the component name has a dot after a digit.

NEXUS-38670: Improved Apt upload performance and speed.

NEXUS-37537: The lastDownloaded attribute for hosted Helm assets now updates as expected in deployments using PostgreSQL or H2.

NEXUS-37024: The Global Webhook capability with Audit Type now works as expected.

Strimzi 0.37.0  
This release contains the following new features and improvements:

  • The StableConnectIdentites feature gate moves to a beta stage. By default, StrimziPodSets are used for Kafka Connect and Kafka Mirror Maker 2. If needed, StableConnectIdentites can be disabled in the feature gates configuration in the Cluster Operator.
  • Support for the ppc64le platform
  • Added version fields to the Kafka custom resource status to track installation and upgrade state
  • Support for infinite auto-restarts of Kafka Connect and Kafka Mirror Maker 2 connectors

It also has several notable changes, deprecations, and removals:  
Removed support for OpenTracing:

  • The tracing.type: jaeger configuration, in KafkaConnect, KafkaMirrorMaker, KafkaMirrorMaker2 and KafkaBridge resources, is not supported anymore.
  • The OpenTelemetry-based tracing is the only available by using tracing.type: opentelemetry.
  • The default behavior of the Kafka Connect connector auto-restart has changed.  When the auto-restart feature is enabled in KafkaConnector or KafkaMirrorMaker2 custom resources, it will now continue to restart the connectors indefinitely rather than stopping after 7 restarts, as previously.  
    If you want to use the original behavior, use the .spec.autoRestart.maxRestarts option to configure the maximum number of restarts.

The automatic configuration of Cruise Control CPU capacity has been changed in this release:

There are three ways to configure Cruise Control CPU capacity values: 
.spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity (for all brokers) 
.spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity.overrides (per broker) 
Kafka resource requests and limits (for all brokers). 
The precedence of which Cruise Control CPU capacity configuration is used has been changed. 
In previous Strimzi versions, the Kafka resource limit (if set) took precedence, regardless if any other CPU configurations were set.

  • For example:
    • (1) Kafka resource limits
    • (2) .spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity.overrides
    • (3) .spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity

This previous behavior was identified as a bug and was fixed in this Strimzi release.

Going forward, the brokerCapacity overrides per broker take top precedence, then general brokerCapacity configuration, and then the Kafka resource requests, then the Kafka resource limits.

  • For example:
    • (1) .spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity.overrides
    • (2) .spec.cruiseControl.brokerCapacity
    • (3) Kafka resource requests
    • (4) Kafka resource limits

When none of Cruise Control CPU capacity configurations mentioned above are configured, CPU capacity will be set to 1.  
as any override value configured in the .spec.cruiseControl section of the Kafka custom resource.
