We’re pleased to announce the latest release of Varnish Controller - our administration console for managing Varnish clusters.
A new version of Varnish Enterprise, release 6.0.8r2, is available now! It adds new Varnish modules (VMODs), features, optimizations, fixes, and more. For the full changelog and release notes, visit the documentation here.
This release is a big one, and focuses on extending Varnish Enterprise with additional building blocks that make it easier to build complex edge logic on top of the Varnish platform. But there are some other useful new features thrown in there too.
Transit Buffer is a feature available in Varnish Enterprise release 6.0.8r2. Read more here.
We get a lot of questions about TLS and Varnish, and we’ve long been touting our TLS proxy, Hitch, as the best way to terminate TLS in front of Varnish. Hitch is a lightweight, high-performance TLS proxy that is entirely dedicated to TLS termination. This makes Hitch a tiny and performant tool that can be used anywhere, including in front of Varnish. One of its main features is the PROXY protocol, which is capable of capturing and transporting information about the original connection, regardless of the number of proxies it passes through.
