What's new in Blue Cedar 3.22.0
iOS 12 support
Blue Cedar includes support for the new Apple iOS 12 release. Customers must upgrade to 3.22+ for iOS 12 support. Apps that previously worked on iOS 11 are expected to work without any issues. Apps that target new APIs for iOS 12 may have issues.
Blue Cedar 3.22.0 does not support the new Network.framework.
Apps (with certain APIs) secured with the Data Sharing policy's preferred apps option may have issues.
Android P support
Blue Cedar includes support for the new Android P release. Apps running on Android P integrated with older versions of Blue Cedar security can crash on startup. Customers must upgrade to 3.22.0+ for Android P support.
Blue Cedar Enforce 3.22.0 now includes test candidate support for IKEv2 via the Secure Microtunnel policy. The Enforce 3.22 Policy Console provides a limited set of options for Secure Microtunnel, including PSK/EAP authentication modes for IKEv2. The Secure Web Stack policy is also available in Enforce 3.22.
Other Secure Microtunnel options are only available in Blue Cedar Enterprise, which does not support IKEv2.
Supported versions of Blue Cedar Enterprise and Blue Cedar Enforce
Blue Cedar supports the current and previous major versions. Customers using versions prior to 3.21.x and 3.22.x should upgrade at their earliest convenience. Customers experiencing issues should upgrade to the latest versions of Policy Console and Gateway, in order to eliminate iOS/Android compatibility issues and issues that have already been resolved. On-premises versions of Policy Console are now Docker-based, residing on a customer-provided Ubuntu server. Blue Cedar Customer Support is available to schedule a time to assist with upgrades.
Blue Cedar has tested specific items that have been addressed in this release, but cannot test all customer apps for full functionality. Please re-secure and test your apps at your earliest convenience before moving to production (i.e., distributing to your end users).
Resolved in 3.22.3
|SPT-1971||iOS||After securing app, navigation bar items and toolbars are not showing up.||Fixed an issue where some app resources were not being downloaded correctly and thus screens and menus would not appear. This was occurring with the Secure Web Stack policy enabled but the DAR policy disabled.|
|SPT-1974||Android||App fails to submit data in API call when secured with 3.22.2||Fixed a bug where some URLConnection APIs were not implicitly performing a connect() if one had not been performed yet. We also fixed another case where the form action URL was different from the actual URL only by case.|
Resolved in 3.22.2
|SPT-1948, SPT-1949, SPT-1951, SPT-1952||Android||App crash due to recent Chrome v72 update||Fixed an issue for Android apps using WebView with current and recent versions of Chrome (v72 and slightly older). Those apps were experiencing a crash when WebView was loaded.|
|SPT-1885||Policy Console||Missing Docker package blocks RPM installation on RedHat||Fixed an issue where the installation process expected a specific Docker Edition. The RPM installation process now requires Docker (any edition) to be installed before continuing.|

Resolved in 3.22.0
|SPT-1797||Android||In place upgrade does not work after securing with 3.21.1||Fixed an issue with apps using SQLite databases integrated with 3.21.1.
