Kong 0.4.0 release

← Back to Blog Home

The latest update of Kong (0.4.0) includes some new exciting features, including:


  • OAuth 2.0 Plugin
  • Mashape Analytics Plugin
  • IP Restriction Plugin, with whitelist and blacklist support (including CIDR)
  • The resolver now supports wildcard domains, like: *
  • CORS support in the Admin API
  • Rate-Limiting Plugin now supports chaining multiple limits together
  • Several bug fixes (especially in the SSL and Basic Authentication Plugins)
  • HTTP Log Plugin now supports HTTPS endpoints.
  • Full changelog is available on Kong’s repository

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

Roadmap to 0.5.0

The next major release will need to address some very important feature requests asked by the community, including:

  • Documentation for creating new private/public plugins in order to customize Kong with extra functionality
  • JWT
  • Benchmarks
  • General improvements
  • Data usage plugin

It will also be a chance for all of us to review some fundamentals of Kong, and clean the road a little a bit. Specifically, we would like to spend some more time on the documentation, tutorials and distribution packages, to make it easier to launch a Kong cluster in production.

Call to arms!

We are looking for more core maintainers of Kong, who share our same passion of making microservices more secure and easier to maintain. If you are in San Francisco, come by at 500-A Montgomery Street (Mashape HQ) anytime for a coding session. It’s going to be an opportunity to talk about technology, microservices and brainstorm on some problems that we are trying to fix.
