Since 2.3 is a minor release, there are no breaking changes with respect to the 2.x series, but being an alpha pre-release, development is not feature-frozen at this time: and any new features introduced here may change between this release and 2.3.0, and more new features are also in the works!
What’s new in Kong 2.3.0-alpha.1
- Introduce version checks between Control Plane and Data Plane nodes in Hybrid Mode.
- Kong entities with a
namefield now support utf-8 characters.
- The certificates entity now has
key_altfields, used to specify an alternative certificate and key pair.
- The go-pluginserver
stdoutare now written into Kong’s logs

- Support for Centos 6 has been removed, as said distro entered EOL on Nov 30.
