Today we are releasing Consul 0.8.2 which includes a number of improvements and bug fixes.
In addition to many bug fixes, Consul 0.8.2 includes:
Improved TLS configurability - easily enable client-side certificate verification, control agent-level host verification, configure cipher suites, and much more.
Faster Dev Mode - tuned internal timeouts to make
consul agent -devalmost instantaneous!
Expanded API Data - local datacenter is now returned as part of most API endpoints which contain a node structure.
UI Improvements - updated the UI to match the new Consul branding, added optional client-side JSON validation, and updated icons.
Bug Fixes - some very nuanced bugs were fixed that could cause a panic during tombstone garbage collection and autopilot.
In addition to these new features, there are a ton of bug fixes and tiny improvements. Please review the v0.8.2 changelog for a detailed list of changes. As always, please test in an isolated environment before upgrading. Consul 0.8.2 is also available in Consul Pro and Consul Enterprise.
