We are happy to announce the release of Kuma 0.5.1! This is a minor release that ships with improvements and bug fixes.
While circuit breakers could already be implemented by using passive health checks, we decided to extract them in their own “Circuit Breaker” policy and – while doing so – also extend their configuration with more advanced features (like Split Mode). You can find this new policy in the Policies (opens new window) page.
Circuit breaking will be removed from the “Health Check” policy in the next version of Kuma.
Join us on our community channels (opens new window) to learn more about Kuma, including our official Slack chat! The community channels are useful to get up and running with Kuma, as well as to learn how to contribute to and discuss the project roadmap.
Be sure to carefully read the Upgrade Guide (opens new window) before upgrading Kuma.
