This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- Recording Cloud Backup Service (RCBS) supports AWS Signature version 4 for requests sent to Amazon S3 Services. RCBS also supports optional payload signing during the transfer. To enable the payload signing, set the option usePayloadSigning to true. Since payload signing affects performance, set the option to false to disable it if your installation does not require authentication. The default value is false.
- Recording Cloud Backup Service (RCBS) now supports a query based on the startTime only, and no longer requires the overlap to be specified, when two consecutive runs with two windows adjacent to each other takes place. Previously, an overlap value had to be specified to avoid missing recordings when RCBS used two back-to-back download windows.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
Recording Cloud Backup Service (RCBS) no longer uses the deprecated RFC2109 cookie format. Previously, the RFC2109 cookie format may have caused requests sent by RCBS to be rejected. (GIR-8286)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.265.71.
