Rotating encryption keys

Talend Studio now allows you to rotate the following two encryption keys by adding a new version of the key with an empty value in the encryption key configuration file.

  • the system encryption key: for encrypting properties and nexus passwords
  • the routine encryption key: for encrypting passwords of generated Jobs
New update mechanism

Talend Studio has improved the patch mechanism to handle monthly updates. You will be able to apply cumulative patches for bug fixes, new components, and new features provided by Talend.

After your administrator accepts a patch for Talend Studio in Talend Administration Center, Talend Studio will detect the new update automatically when opening a remote project.

Note that all Talend Studio clients connected to the same project must install the same patch. Otherwise, you cannot connect to the project successfully.

Log4j 2 support

Talend Studio now supports Apache logging utility Log4j 2 in components and allows you to enable or disable Log4j 2 loggers and customize the configuration globally for the project.

Note: If you need to deploy your Jobs to Talend Cloud, the use of Log4j 2 requires Talend Remote Engine 2.8.1 or higher. Otherwise, no log will be shown for those Jobs with Log4j 2 enabled.
