Kong 2.3.0-alpha.1 is released!

Hello everyone,

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 name field now support utf-8 characters.
  • The certificates entity now has cert_alt and key_alt fields, used to specify an alternative certificate and key pair.
  • The go-pluginserver stderr and stdout are now written into Kong’s logs
  • … and more!

Also note:

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