Today we’re announcing two exciting TLS improvements for apps running in Private Spaces—Heroku’s runtime optimized for security-sensitive workloads that require network and tenant isolation:

On May 10, 2018, we received notice about two critical vulnerabilities in Redis, both embargoed until this morning.

If you’re interested in more behind the scenes details, check out our engineering blog post on how our Data Infrastructure team undertook the effort to patch our entire Redis fleet.


Today we're excited to announce that Heroku CLI Autocomplete for Bash and Zsh is generally available.
