Kong 2.2.0-rc.1 available

Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce the release candidate for Kong 2.2!

This includes all fixes and adjustments made since we entered feature freeze with
Kong 2.2.0-beta.1, and as such there are no new features over that release, and
of course no breaking changes with respect to the 2.x series.

If no serious issues are reported, this release will effectively be promoted to
the stable 2.2.0 release, so this is now the best time to test the new features and
report any issues!

What’s New Since 2.2.0-beta.1

Here’s a summary of the fixes added since the beta release:

  • Admin API
    • new operation PATCH for Targets new returns HTTP 200 instead of HTTP 204,
      matching the behavior of other entities
    • The new endpoint for obtaining a global view of Data Plane nodes in hybrid
      mode was renamed from /clustering/data_planes to /clustering/data-planes
    • The old endpoint /clustering/status which gave only a node-local view,
      which had been removed in the beta, was restored to avoid a breaking change,
      and is now marked as deprecated.
  • Migrations
    • Improved the error handling for migrations between 2.1.3 and 2.2.0
    • Added a deprecation note to the “migration helpers” module, which was never a
      fully documented API


Please note that the download locations for prereleases are kept separate from the final release locations:

Happy Konging!
