Announcing version 2.6 of the Service Broker API

Dieu Cao <dcao@...>

On behalf of the CAPI team I'm pleased to announce version 2.6 of the
Service Broker API. Two minor changes were introduced in this update.

Support for Service Keys was introduced with cf-release v213 and CLI
v6.12.1. This features enables service providers to support creation of
credentials, called service keys, without requiring the user to bind the
service to an application. This allows for easier provisioning of service
credentials for use by external applications and clients.

In support of Service Keys, the field app_guid is no longer guaranteed with the
bind request <>. When
users bind a service instance to an application, the field will be included
with the request. When users create a service key the bind request is also
made, but app_guid will not be included. Brokers that require this field
can reject the request with a specific error code which causes Cloud
Foundry to return a meaningful error to the user.

With cf-release v213, the field service_id is now included in the update
Thanks to Mike Heath for suggesting this improvement.
