1.7.0 (Jun 21, 2018)¶
access log: added ability to log response trailers.
access log: added ability to format START_TIME.
access log: added DYNAMIC_METADATA access log formatter.
access log: added HeaderFilter to filter logs based on request headers.
access log: added %([1-9])?f as one of START_TIME specifiers to render subseconds.
access log: gRPC Access Log Service (ALS) support added for HTTP access logs.
access log: improved WebSocket logging.
GET /config_dumpfor dumping the current configuration and associated xDS version information (if applicable).
GET /clusters?format=jsonfor outputing a JSON-serialized proto detailing the current status of all clusters.
GET /stats/prometheusas an alternative endpoint for getting stats in prometheus format.
admin: added /runtime_modify endpoint to add or change runtime values.
admin: mutations must be sent as POSTs, rather than GETs. Mutations include:
admin: removed /routes endpoint; route configs can now be found at the /config_dump endpoint.
buffer filter: the buffer filter can be optionally disabled or overridden with route-local configuration.
cli: added –config-yaml flag to the Envoy binary. When set its value is interpreted as a yaml representation of the bootstrap config and overrides –config-path.
cluster: added option to close tcp_proxy upstream connections when health checks fail.
cluster: added option to drain connections from hosts after they are removed from service discovery, regardless of health status.
cluster: fixed bug preventing the deletion of all endpoints in a priority
debug: added symbolized stack traces (where supported)
ext-authz filter: added support to raw HTTP authorization.
ext-authz filter: added support to gRPC responses to carry HTTP attributes.
grpc: support added for the full set of Google gRPC call credentials.
gzip filter: added stats to the filter.
gzip filter: sending accept-encoding header as identity no longer compresses the payload.
health check: added ability to set additional HTTP headers for HTTP health check.
health check: added support for EDS delivered endpoint health status.
health check: added interval overrides for health state transitions from healthy to unhealthy, unhealthy to healthy and for subsequent checks on unhealthy hosts.
health check: added support for custom health check.
health check: health check connections can now be configured to use http/2.
health check http filter: added generic header matching to trigger health check response. Deprecated the endpoint option.
http: filters can now optionally support virtual host, route, and weighted cluster local configuration.
http: added the ability to pass DNS type Subject Alternative Names of the client certificate in the x-forwarded-client-cert header.
http: local responses to gRPC requests are now sent as trailers-only gRPC responses instead of plain HTTP responses. Notably the HTTP response code is always “200” in this case, and the gRPC error code is carried in “grpc-status” header, optionally accompanied with a text message in “grpc-message” header.
http: added support for via header append.
http: added a configuration option to elide x-forwarded-for header modifications.
http: fixed a bug in inline headers where addCopy and addViaMove didn’t add header values when encountering inline headers with multiple instances.
listeners: added tcp_fast_open_queue_length option.
listeners: added the ability to match FilterChain using application_protocols (e.g. ALPN for TLS protocol).
listeners: sni_domains has been deprecated/renamed to server_names.
listeners: removed restriction on all filter chains having identical filters.
load balancer: added weighted round robin support. The round robin scheduler now respects endpoint weights and also has improved fidelity across picks.
load balancer: locality weighted load balancing is now supported.
load balancer: ability to configure zone aware load balancer settings through the API.
load balancer: the weighted least request load balancing algorithm has been improved to have better balance when operating in weighted mode.
logger: added the ability to optionally set the log format via the
logger: all logging levels can be configured at run-time: trace debug info warning error critical.
rbac http filter: a role-based access control http filter has been added.
router: the behavior of per-try timeouts have changed in the case where a portion of the response has already been proxied downstream when the timeout occurs. Previously, the response would be reset leading to either an HTTP/2 reset or an HTTP/1 closed connection and a partial response. Now, the timeout will be ignored and the response will continue to proxy up to the global request timeout.
router: changed the behavior of source IP routing to ignore the source port.
router: added an prefix_match match type to explicitly match based on the prefix of a header value.
router: added an suffix_match match type to explicitly match based on the suffix of a header value.
router: added an present_match match type to explicitly match based on a header’s presence.
router: added an invert_match config option which supports inverting all other match types to match based on headers which are not a desired value.
router: allow cookie routing to generate session cookies.
router: added START_TIME as one of supported variables in header formatters.
router: added a max_grpc_timeout config option to specify the maximum allowable value for timeouts decoded from gRPC header field grpc-timeout.
router: added a configuration option to disable x-envoy- header generation.
router: added ‘unavailable’ to the retriable gRPC status codes that can be specified through x-envoy-retry-grpc-on.
sockets: added tap transport socket extension to support recording plain text traffic and PCAP generation.
sockets: added IP_FREEBIND socket option support for listeners and upstream connections via cluster manager wide and cluster specific options.
sockets: added IP_TRANSPARENT socket option support for listeners.
sockets: added SO_KEEPALIVE socket option for upstream connections per cluster.
stats: added support for histograms.
stats: added option to configure the statsd prefix.
stats: updated stats sink interface to flush through a single call.
tls: added support for verify_certificate_spki.
tls: added support for multiple verify_certificate_hash values.
tls: added support for using verify_certificate_spki and verify_certificate_hash without trusted_ca.
tls: added support for allowing expired certificates with allow_expired_certificate.
tls: added support for renegotiation when acting as a client.
tls: removed support for legacy SHA-2 CBC cipher suites.
tracing: the sampling decision is now delegated to the tracers, allowing the tracer to decide when and if to use it. For example, if the x-b3-sampled header is supplied with the client request, its value will override any sampling decision made by the Envoy proxy.
websocket: support configuring idle_timeout and max_connect_attempts.
upstream: added support for host override for a request in Original destination host request header.
header to metadata: added HTTP Header to Metadata filter.
Admin mutations should be sent as POSTs rather than GETs. HTTP GETs will result in an error status code and will not have their intended effect. Prior to 1.7, GETs can be used for admin mutations, but a warning is logged.
Rate limit service configuration via the cluster_name field is deprecated. Use grpc_service instead.
gRPC service configuration via the cluster_names field in ApiConfigSource is deprecated. Use grpc_services instead. Prior to 1.7, a warning is logged.
Redis health checker configuration via the redis_health_check field in HealthCheck is deprecated. Use custom_health_check with name envoy.health_checkers.redis instead. Prior to 1.7, redis_health_check can be used, but warning is logged.
SAN is replaced by URI in the x-forwarded-client-cert header.
The endpoint field in the http health check filter is deprecated in favor of the headers field where one can specify HeaderMatch objects to match on.
The sni_domains field in the filter chain match was deprecated/renamed to server_names.
