The Journey from 0.1 to 1.0
Our latest release, Contour 1.1, now includes request and response header manipulation as well as host rewriting to external domains.
Contour 1.2 includes support for certificate rotation for xDS gRPC interface between Contour and Envoy. Additionally, Contour 1.2 assists in Envoy rollouts in your cluster to minimize the number of connection errors.
Contour 1.4 adds support for client certificate authentication to HTTPProxy objects. Additionally, some Ingress behaviors are fixed - Ingress addresses are now recorded correctly, and Contour's `--ingress-class` argument behaves more as you would expect.
Contour is now part of the CNCF, and we're taking the opportunity to reevaluate our product philosophy.
