Refresh 3 of Cloud Pak for Data Version 3.5

A new version of RStudio Server with R 3.6 was released in February 2021.

Assembly version: 3.5.2

This release includes the following changes:

Bug fixes
This release includes the following fix:
  • Issue: Cannot launch the RStudio IDE if a load balancer is used after upgrading from Cloud Pak for Data version 3.0.1 to version 3.5. This fix changes the routing rules when using a load balancer URL to access RStudio. After you have applied this fix, when you access RStudio in a Chrome browser, sign-in authentication still fails because the redirected URL is taken from the Chrome cache that is never cleared.

    Resolution: Disable the browser cache in Developer Tools.

A new version of RStudio Server with R 3.6 was released in January 2021.
