This release enhances a number of features in Consul while adding such new features as a Consul on Kubernetes CNI plugin and a beta version of cluster peering.
Cluster peering in Consul 1.13 offers a whole new model of how Consul handles cross-cluster federation.
HashiCorp Consul 1.11 adds important new features: multi-tenancy with administrative partitions, new installation-and-management Consul Kubernetes CLI, and Vault integration on Consul Kubernetes.
Consul 1.10 can transparently intercept and redirect traffic to sidecar proxies in the service mesh to allow applications to be deployed without modification.
Consul 1.10 adds exciting new features such as transparent proxy for service mesh, support for xDS v3, streaming, and observability enhancements.
In Consul 1.8, we introduced terminating gateways. These gateways can be leveraged to enable mesh-based services to securely communicate with services residing outside of the service mesh. Read this blog to learn more about this new feature.
