  • Adjustable: The default worker count for Scan Job workers will now be calculated based on available CPU. The new default is now equal to the number of CPUs plus two, so the minimum worker count is 2 and the maximum worker count is 10. Previously, the default was 10 unless user-configured otherwise.

Beta Updates


  • Squashed: Resolved bug where disconnected services were not reconnecting despite sending a new health check message.
