December 2021 LTS backport releases

We did it again! A bunch of new backport releases for our Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) LTS users are available.

Following are the new available versions linking to the relevant release notes entries:

Of course the related Helm charts and other resources are all available as part of the update.

Beyond the usual backports for correctness issues, this release train had a focus point around the log4shell vulnerabilities. Despite the fact that Trino and Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) are not affected, we decided to eliminate any potential risk of exposure. Now log4j binaries are either gone completely or updated to unaffected version.

All the details can be found in the release notes and the dedicated security advisory for log4shell in our brand new security section.
