Helm v2.7.2 is a security release and bug release. Users are strongly encouraged
to upgrade.

The Helm Core Maintainers discovered a bug in TLS handling. Versions of Tiller
prior to 2.7.1 had a certificate verification policy that allowed self-signed
certificates to pass the server-side certificate verification phase.

This release contains a fix that requires the client certificate to be verified
against Tiller's CA.

Additionally, this release adds documentation for configuring strong gRPC authentication
using TLS. While this feature has been available since 2.3.0, it was not properly

Finally, this release contains several TLS-related fixes to Helm CLI commands, adding TLS
parameters back to the helm get * verbs, and fixing helm list --tls.

The community keeps growing, and we'd love to see you there.

Breaking Changes

This release places much more stringent requirements on certificate auth. It is
possible that some misconfigured Helm SSL configurations that were working are now
