consul v1.10.2 Release Notes

Release Date: 2021-08-27 // about 2 months ago
  • KNOWN ISSUES:

    • ๐Ÿš€ tls: The fix for CVE-2021-37219 introduced an issue that could prevent TLS certificate validation when intermediate CA certificates used to sign server certificates are transmitted in the TLS session but are not present in all Consul server's configured CA certificates. This has the effect of preventing Raft RPCs between the affected servers. As a work around until the next patch releases, ensure that all intermediate CA certificates are present in all Consul server configurations prior to using certificates that they have signed.

Previous changes from v1.10.1

  • KNOWN ISSUES:

    • The change to enable streaming by default uncovered an incompatibility between streaming and WAN federation over mesh gateways causing traffic to fall back to attempting a direct WAN connection rather than transiting through the gateways. We currently suggest explicitly setting use_streaming_backend=false if using WAN federation over mesh gateways when upgrading to 1.10.1 and are working to address this issue in a future patch release.
