Release Notes

The cf-release v250 was released on December 22, 2016.

IMPORTANT - The CAPI Release included in CF-250 has several new manifest properties that aren’t meant to be required yet. We’ve discovered an issue with BOSH directors before v257 where these properties must still be set. One of the following workarounds should be applied: - Upgrade your BOSH deployment to v257 or later - Set the following properties to ”” in your CF Deployment manifest: cc.mutual_tls.ca_cert, cc.mutual_tls.public_cert, and cc.mutual_tls.private_key - The Loggregator bosh properties for loggregator.tls.metron.cert and loggregator.tls.metron.key do not need to be set for this release. They were added for documentation that a future version of cf-release will require these properties.
