[RELEASE] Scylla Manager 3.2.6

The ScyllaDB team announces the release of ScyllaDB Manager 3.2.6 production-ready ScyllaDB Manager patch release of the stable ScyllaDB Manager 3.2 branch.

ScyllaDB Manager is a centralized cluster administration and recurrent tasks automation tool.

This release fixes issues in Manager backup, in particular for Alternator, and repair.

In this version, we introduce new properties for the cluster. The --force-tls-disabled option compels health checks to establish non-encrypted CQL sessions, even if Scylla is configured to support encrypted sessions. Additionally, the --force-non-ssl-session-port flag instructs Scylla Manager to consistently use native_transport_port instead of native_transport_port_ssl for encrypted CQL sessions (#3679).

Cron for tasks scheduling can now be combined with the --start-date flag to specify the exact time and date for the first task execution (#3701, #3700).

We have also updated Scylla Manager to handle node IP changes more effectively, particularly in Kubernetes environments (#3707).

Support for IMDSv2 has been added. If the region is not defined in scylla-manager-agent.yaml, the region will be determined based on the response from IMDSv2. Previously, only IMDSv1 was supported (#3735).

ScyllaDB Enterprise customers are encouraged to upgrade to ScyllaDB Manager 3.2.6 in coordination with the ScyllaDB support team.

The new release includes upgrades of both ScyllaDB Manager Server and Agent.
