As if we were an agrarian society, our releases keep revolving around the weather calendar seasons. Autumn is around the corner (northern hemisphere), so our release is ready for a cool autumn.


This release adds two interesting components: the JOSE component responsible for the JWT signing and validation, and the Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) component. There is also a Consul client available.

The Krakend Playground and the KrakenDesigner (UI) is also updated.

KrakenD framework

The KrakenD framework brings only a few changes:

  • Decoupled the HTTP server from the router packages
  • Add the Service name in the configuration
  • BUGFIX: Merge with incomplete responses
