Smart ID deployment configuration release note
All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file. Be aware that the [Unreleased] features are not yet available in the official tagged builds.  

## [Release 22.10.0-2022-09-20]

### Added

- Added ContentProviderJWSSigner descriptor in signencrypt.xml. [CRED-12232]
- Added renewFromKeypairs.sh to renew end-entity certs.

  WARNING:

  - This only works if you (re-)bootstrap with the updated createca.sh, as the old version discarded data required for renewal.
  - Re-bootstrapping will invalidate any encrypted secrets and history signatures in IDM due to chaning the keys.
  - Re-bootstrapping will also overwrite the certificates and keys in the docker deployment folder, so make a backup first,
    so you can use the respective tools for re-signing and re-encrypting existing history/secrets.

### Changed

- automatically (re-)start mailhog
- fixed naming of traefik rules for mobile-iron
- Changed createca.sh to retain keypairs and CA metadata, so we can enable renewal (see above).

- Fixed the copy_files.sh script used in IDM operator, admin and tenant [DEVOPS-692] + [DEVOPS-656]

## [2020.11.1-2021-02-18]
