Kong 0.10.2 has been released and we highly recommend to upgrade. We’d like to highlight a few important features and fixes it introduces.
- A new request-termination plugin, which comes handy when you need to temporarily disable an API or block a Consumer. This plugin was generously contributed by Paul Austin.
- Plugins can now implement a new ‘rewrite()’ handler function, which is a hook in the Nginx phase bearing the same name.
- Kong does not unconditionally append a trailing slash to the URL of your upstream services anymore.
- Ability to hide Kong headers in responses.
- And much more in the changelog.
IBM OpenWhisk and Kong
In case you missed the announcement, Kong now supports OpenWhisk functions. You will be able to protect, secure and rate-limiting OpenWhisk Actions with Kong and other plugins, enabling your infrastructure to more serverless options (Kong also supports AWS Lambda).
Upgrading from < 0.10.x
If you are migrating from an older version of Kong < 0.10.x, follow the migration instructions.
