Issues Fixed in Cloudera Data Science Workbench 1.8.0

The current release of Cloudera Data Science Workbench includes fixes for bugs.

  • Improved platform stability and performance
    • Fixed a number of potential security vulnerabilities in the base operating systems of our Kubernetes pods
    • Upgraded Kubernetes to 1.14
    • Fixed the Sweet32 Birthday attack vulnerability within the Kubernetes infrastructure that supports CDSW

      Cloudera Bug: DSE-9061

  • A number of CDSW pods now run as non-root users

    Cloudera Bug: DSE-10493, DSE-7357

  • Changed how the web sessions are handled
    • CDSW provides an option to refresh the session five minutes before your web session expires so that your active users can continue their session without the cookie expiring.

    • Administrators can now disable the ability to have multiple concurrent sessions. This prevents users from logging in to the same account with multiple browsers or computers. By default, users will still be able to have concurrent web browser sessions. This may change in a future release.

  • Accessibility fixes
    • The CDSW UI has been polished with many accessibility fixes. The main application strives to be WCAG2AA compliant with the exception of the workbench editor.
