[ANN] Vault 1.5.5 Released

Hi folks,

The Vault team is happy to announce the release of Vault 1.5.5!

Open-source binaries can be downloaded at [1]. Enterprise binaries are available to customers as well.

As a reminder, if you believe you have found a security issue in Vault, please responsibly disclose by emailing security@hashicorp.com and do not use the public issue tracker. Our security policy and our PGP key can be found at [2].

Key fixes and improvements in this release are enumerated below.

  • AWS Timeouts : For the AWS auth method, the AWS secrets engine, and AWS unseal, we have set the default IMDS timeouts to match the AWS SDK.
  • Lease Counts : We fixed an issue where lease counts were not being decremented in telemetry, making it appear that the number of leases was perpetually increasing.
  • Integrated Storage : We added a metric to show raft peers for integrated storage.
  • Integrated Storage : We’ve added the ability to add and remove raft peers in a DR secondary cluster.

See the Changelog at [3] for the full list of improvements and bug fixes.

OSS [5] and Enterprise [6] Docker images will be available soon.


See [4] for general upgrade instructions.

As always, we recommend upgrading and testing this release in an isolated environment. If you experience any non-security issues, please report them on the Vault GitHub issue tracker or post to the Vault Discuss Forum at [7].

We hope you enjoy Vault 1.5.5!

Sincerely, The Vault Team
