Kong 0.10.3 has been released with a few security fixes and performance improvements, and we recommend to upgrade:

Updates

    Performance has been improved when using the rate-limiting plugin, also reducing the load on the counter datastore. Kong now supports Mutual SSL security between Kong and the final APIs with the “proxy_ssl_certificate” and “proxy_ssl_certificate_key” configuration properties.

DNS resolution performance has been improved under certain conditions. And much more in the changelog.
