Kong 0.9.9 released

We recommend to update to the latest update of Kong (0.9.9) that ships with important bug-fixes, especially if you are using Cassandra.


  • Correctly put Cassandra sockets into the Nginx connection pool for later reuse. This greatly improves the performance for rate-limiting and response-ratelimiting plugins.
  • Correct length of a year in seconds for rate-limiting and response-ratelimiting plugins. A year was wrongly assumed to only be 360 days long.
  • Prevent misinterpretation of the % character in proxied URLs encoding. Thanks Thomas Jouannic for the patch.

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?
