The EdgeX Foundry project, a highly-scalable and flexible open source framework that facilitates interoperability between devices and applications at the IoT edge, issued a bug fix release (version 2.1.1) of the EdgeX Jakarta release. Importantly, as Jakarta is under long-term-support (LTS), this new bug fix release addresses a critical Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) issue. Adopters using the Jakarta LTS release should upgrade immediately to this bug fix release. The CVE is documented on the project’s GitHub site. In addition, this bug fix release also addresses some less critical bugs that were identified and fixed through the Kamakura release cycle. Details on what is in version 2.1.1 can be found on the project’s Wiki site.
All of the fixes in this Jakarta dot release are already available in the Kamakura release (the latest, but non-LTS, release from EdgeX). Adopters of Kamakura do not need to make any changes as the CVE and other bug fixes are already part of the latest EdgeX release.
