This is a Release Candidate of Kong Gateway 2.4.0, the next release in the Kong 2.x series. This means that work in this release cycle is considered finished and if no new bugs are found, the GA version is supposed to be identical.
What’s new in Kong 2.4.0 Release Candidate 1
- OpenSSL bumped to 1.1.1k.
- lua-resty-ssl and lua-resty-dns-client bumped to their latest versions.
- A good number of bug fixes, that can be checked at the 2.4.0 Changelog.
… and more!
The required OpenResty version has been bumped to 220.127.116.11, and the set of patches included has changed, including the latest release of lua-kong-nginx-module.
Kong now uses a to-be-released version of lua-resty-dns.
These only affect users building their own Kong version.
