This release includes performance improvements that have been identified by our new performance suite which replicates a Kuma deployment at scale. This allows us to anticipate some performance issues that you may be experiencing in production and ship a fix as part of our continuous improvements to the product.
Particularly, we have reduced the likelihood of overwhelming the underlying Postgres database in
universal mode, and we are making incremental improvements to the CPU and memory consumption of Kuma. These performance improvements are our top priority, so please reach out to the maintainers if you would like to report any issue running Kuma at scale.

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. Kuma is a CNCF Sandbox project: neutral, open and inclusive.
