Hi,

HAProxy 1.9.0 was released on 2018/12/19. It added 45 new commits
after version 1.9-dev11.

We still had a number of small issues causing the various artefacts that
have been visible on haproxy.org since this week-end, but now everything
looks OK. So it's better to release before we discover new issues :-)

Speaking more seriously, in the end, what we expected to be just a technical
release looks pretty nice on the features perspective. The features by
themselves are not high-level but address a wide number of integration
cases that overall make this version really appealing.

In the end 1.9 brings to end users (as a quick summary) :
  - end-to-end HTTP/2
  - advanced master process management with its own CLI
  - much more scalable multi-threading
  - regression test suite
  - priority-based dequeueing
  - better cache supporting larger objects
  - early hints (HTTP 103)
  - cipher suites for TLS 1.3
  - random balance algorithm
  - fine-grained timers for better observability
  - stdout logging for containers and systemd

And the rest which has kept us very busy was needed to achieve this and
to pave the way to future developments and more contributions from people
who won't have to know the internals as deeply as it used to be needed.
It's expected that the road to 2.0 will be calmer now.

Well, I know that so quick a summary doesn't do justice to the developers
having done all this amazing work, but I've seen that some of my coworkers
have started to write an article detailing all these new features, so I
won't waste my time paraphrasing them. I'll pass the URL here once this
article becomes public. No, I'm not lazy, I'm tired and hungry ;-)
