Kong 0.9.8 released

We recommend to update to the latest update of Kong (0.9.8) that ships with some significant bugfixes and performance improvements, especially if you are using Cassandra or Redis:


  • Properly set the admin IP in the Serf script.
  • Provide negative-caching for missed database entities. This should improve performance in some cases.
  • Fix fault tolerancy logic and error reporting in rate-limiting plugins.

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.

Curious about the new version?
