Kong 0.2.1 released

The latest update of Kong (0.2.1) includes several bug fixes since the initial launch two weeks ago.


  • Support for local DNS resolutions
  • Support for Debian 8 and Ubuntu 15.04
  • Support for multiple Host headers (Kong now works well with Postman)
  • Support for multiple host:port pairs in Cassandra
  • Full changelog available on Kong’s repository

To update to the latest version, simply follow the installation instructions to reinstall Kong.

Roadmap to 0.3.0

This release is the foundation for the next major release (0.3.0) which will include:

  • Better SSL support as the foundation for building the OAuth 2 plugin
  • Plugin modularization to ease their separation from the Kong core
  • New plugins such as Request Size and Response Transformation (to block large payloads on a “per-microservice” and “per-consumer” setting)

As always, we would like to invite you to contribute to the project by opening issues, submitting pull requests and chatting with the core maintainers on our Gitter channel.
