We’re happy to announce a new Varnish Enterprise release! Version 6.0.9r1 introduces the Slicer VMOD (which joins the recently added Image VMOD) plus additional improvements and bug fixes. See the full changelog here.
In this episode we'll be looking at dynamic backends. Dynamic backends in Varnish allow backends to be defined on the fly, instead of being predefined. Basically imagine if instead of connecting varnish to one specific origin server, you enable it to connect to different ones as required, say multiple servers.
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.
