Previously, the Image service client could be configured to only allow uploading images in certain formats (for example, raw, ami, iso) to the Image service server. The client also allowed download of an image from the server only if it was in one of these formats. As a result of this restriction, users could not download images in other formats that had been previously uploaded.
With this update, as the Image service server already validates image formats at the time they are imported, there is no need for the Image service client to verify image format when it is downloaded. As a result, the image format validation when an image is downloaded is now skipped, allowing the consumption of images in legitimate formats even if the client-side support for upload of images in those formats is no longer configured.
