This release contains the following resolved issue:
Configuration Server no longer attempts to store the DBMS access password, as read from the startup configuration file, back into the Configuration Database after successfully connecting to the database. Previously, the Configuration Server Application object sometimes attempted to populate its own password option with that value. If the password had already been encrypted in the configuration file, Configuration Server sometimes failed to encrypt it again, logged ERROR: invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8", and remained in Read Only mode until it was restarted.

No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 188.8.131.52.
