Consul v0.7.4 includes a number of exciting new features and improvements:

  • Use Host UUID for Node ID - Integrated with the gopsutil library to use the built-in host UUID as the node ID, if available, instead of a randomly generated UUID. This makes it easier for other applications on the same host to generate the same node ID without coordinating with Consul.

  • Specify Minimum TLS Version - Added a configuration option, tls_min_version, for setting the minimum allowed TLS version used for the HTTP API and RPC.

  • New Relay Factor - Added a relay-factor option to keyring operations to allow nodes to relay their response through N randomly-chosen other nodes in the cluster.

  • Updated Go Version - Consul is now built with Go 1.7.5.

  • Resolve by Node ID in DNS - Added the ability to lookup Consul agents by either their Node ID or Node Name through the node interface.

In addition to these new features, there are a ton of bug fixes and tiny improvements. Please review the v0.7.4 changelog for a detailed list of changes.

A special thank you to our community members who have been invaluable in adding new features, reporting bugs, and improving the documentation for Consul.
