Sonatype Nexus Repository 3.55.0 Release Notes

Released June 5, 2023

Highlights in This Release

Improved Flexibility in Resiliency Helm Chart PRO

Fluentbit, External DNS, and the Docker Ingress and service are now all optional in the Helm chart for a resilient Sonatype Nexus Repository deployment in AWS.

Streamlined Experience for Those Using Sonatype Repository Firewall

Those using Sonatype Repository Firewall with Sonatype Nexus Repository will no longer see Repository Health Check references in their Sonatype Nexus Repository instances as Firewall is a much more fully featured tool for identifying security risks in your repositories.

Quick Actions on Welcome Page

To improve user experience, we've added some quick actions to the welcome page to get you using Sonatype Nexus Repository more quickly.

What's New and Noteworthy in This Release?

Improved Flexibility in Resiliency Helm ChartPRO

In order to allow you to better control your resilient deployment's configuration, we've updated our Helm chart for a resilient Sonatype Nexus Repository deployment in AWS to make the following configurations optional:

  • Fluentbit

  • External DNS

  • Docker Ingress and service

Added Conan EndpointPRO

In this release, we implemented the /v2/users/authenticate Conan endpoint for hosted Conan repositories on Sonatype Nexus Repository deployments using H2 or PostgreSQL databases.

Note

Sonatype Nexus Repository still only officially supports Conan v1.

Streamlined Experience for Those Using Sonatype Repository Firewall

Because integrating Sonatype Repository Firewall with Sonatype Nexus Repository provides the most robust solution for protecting your repositories from security risks, we wanted to remove some clutter from our Firewall users' screens. To this end, instances that meet the following two conditions will no longer see Repository Health Check references in their Sonatype Nexus Repository instances:

  1. The Enable IQ Server checkbox is checked under Administration → IQ Server.

  2. The IQ Server instance has Sonatype Repository Firewall as a feature.

    1. You can determine if your IQ Server instance has Sonatype Repository Firewall by sending a GET request to the /rest/product/features endpoint in IQ Server.

    2. The service will return a firewall property if it is included as a feature.

This impacts theHealth Checkcolumn in tables for browsing and managing repositories as well as the Health Check: Configurationcapability.

This feature is only available for those who have the Outreach Management capability enabled for their instance.

Bug Fixes

  • The Standard request timeout and Extended request timeout fields in the UI:Settings capability are now properly updated when upgrading from older versions.

  • Sonatype Nexus Repository now supports Yum repositories using the caret (^) character in RPM names.

  • Staging move respects the Allow redeploy only on 'latest' tag setting as expected.

  • Subdomain routing now reflects the nexus-context-path.

  • NuGet v3 search in non-HA environments now return components that have a dot after a digit. Note that search works differently in HA, and we are still investigating a fix for HA environments.
