1.4.0 (August 24, 2017)¶
macOS is now supported. (A few features are missing such as hot restart and original destination routing).
YAML is now directly supported for config files.
Added /routes admin endpoint.
End-to-end flow control is now supported for TCP proxy, HTTP/1, and HTTP/2. HTTP flow control that includes filter buffering is incomplete and will be implemented in 1.5.0.
Log verbosity compile time flag added.
Hot restart compile time flag added.
Original destination cluster and load balancer added.
WebSocket is now supported.
Virtual cluster priorities have been hard removed without deprecation as we are reasonably sure no one is using this feature.
Route validate_clusters option added.
x-envoy-downstream-service-node header added.
x-forwarded-client-cert header added.
Initial HTTP/1 forward proxy support for absolute URLs has been added.
HTTP/2 codec settings are now configurable.
gRPC/JSON transcoder filter added.
gRPC web filter added.
Configurable timeout for the rate limit service call in the network and HTTP rate limit filters.
x-envoy-retry-grpc-on header added.
LDS API added.
TLS :require_client_certificate option added.
Configuration check tool added.
JSON schema check tool added.
Config validation mode added via the
IPv6 support is now complete.
UDP statsd_ip_address option added.
Per-cluster DNS resolvers added.
Fault filter enhancements and fixes.
Several features are deprecated as of the 1.4.0 release. They will be removed at the beginning of the 1.5.0 release cycle. We explicitly call out that the HttpFilterConfigFactory filter API has been deprecated in favor of NamedHttpFilterConfigFactory.
Many small bug fixes and performance improvements not listed.
Config option statsd_local_udp_port has been deprecated and has been replaced with statsd_udp_ip_address.
HttpFilterConfigFactory filter API has been deprecated in favor of NamedHttpFilterConfigFactory.
Config option http_codec_options has been deprecated and has been replaced with http2_settings.
The following log macros have been deprecated: log_trace, log_debug, conn_log, conn_log_info, conn_log_debug, conn_log_trace, stream_log, stream_log_info, stream_log_debug, stream_log_trace. For replacements, please see logger.h.
The connectionId() and ssl() callbacks of StreamFilterCallbacks have been deprecated and replaced with a more general connection() callback, which, when not returning a nullptr, can be used to get the connection id and SSL connection from the returned Connection object pointer.
The protobuf stub gRPC support via Grpc::RpcChannelImpl is now replaced with Grpc::AsyncClientImpl. This no longer uses protoc generated stubs but instead utilizes C++ template generation of the RPC stubs. Grpc::AsyncClientImpl supports streaming, in addition to the previous unary, RPCs.
The direction of network and HTTP filters in the configuration will be ignored from 1.4.0 and later removed from the configuration in the v2 APIs. Filter direction is now implied at the C++ type level. The type() methods on the NamedNetworkFilterConfigFactory and NamedHttpFilterConfigFactory interfaces have been removed to reflect this.
