Kong 2.3.0-beta.1 is released!

Hello everyone,

:construction: This is the BETA pre-release of Kong Gateway 2.3.0, the next release in the Kong 2.x series. This means that work is still ongoing on bug fixes, but feature freeze has already happened.

What’s new in Kong 2.3.0 Beta 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.
  • Kong now supports running multiple plugin servers. This feature is backwards-compatible with the existing single Go pluginserver.
  • 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.


For folks interested in trying the beta release, take note that the download locations for the beta release is kept separate from the final release locations:
