Kong 1.0 GA

Today, we’re thrilled to announce the general availability of Kong 1.0 – a scalable, fast, open source Microservice API Gateway built to manage, secure and connect hybrid and cloud-native architectures. Kong runs in front of any service and is extended through plugins including authentication, traffic control, observability and more.

In 1.0, users can now deploy Kong not only as an API gateway but also as a standalone service-mesh proxy. Kong plugins provide key functionality for service mesh out of the box and integrations with other cloud-native technologies including Prometheus, Zipkin, health checks, canary, blue-green and much more.
