Hi, HAProxy 1.7.1 was released on 2016/12/13. It added 28 new commits after version 1.7.0.
It addresses a few issues related to how buffers are allocated under low memory condition consecutive to the applet scheduling changes introduced before 1.6 was released (Christopher found a nest of pre-1.6 bugs in this area when trying to stress SPOE and each time he would fix one, another would pop up), and a few other issues specific to 1.7 : - CONNECT method was broken since the introduction in filters in 1.7-dev2 or so. It seems like nobody deploys a development version in front of an outgoing proxy (which I can easily understand) - "show stat resolvers" and "show tls-keys" were wrong after the move out of cli.c (typo in return value) - "show stat" on a proxy with no LB algo (transparent or redispatch) could crash by trying to dereference the algo name which was null. Now it will report "none" or "unknown". - fixed LibreSSL support The rest is pretty minor and mostly doc cleanups and spelling fixes. Given that the two "major" bugs and half of the medium ones also affect 1.6, expect 1.6.11 in the next few weeks. It's important to note that while marked "major", they only manifest under strong memory pressure.
