We strongly recommend to update to the latest update of Kong (0.9.7) that ships with some significant bugfixes and performance improvements, especially if you are using Cassandra:
- Fixed a performance issue in Cassandra by removing an old workaround that was forcing Cassandra to use LuaSocket instead of cosockets.
- Custom plugins are now properly loaded again.
- Galileo: properly encode empty arrays.
- OAuth 2: some improvements, including safely parsing the request body even when no data has been sent.
- And more.
To update to the latest version, simply follow the installation instructions.
Upgrading from < 0.9.x
If you are migrating from an older version of Kong < 0.9.x, then follow the migration instructions in order to make your Kong cluster functioning after updating to 0.9.x.
