Bug Fixes

  • This plugin was unintentionally excluded from the distribution in 3.8.15 and has now been
    added back.

    GitHub issue: #3023

Management Plugin


  • Messaging polling HTTP API endpoint leaked temporary connections it used in case of a polling timeout.
    Note that this endpoint is not recommended to be used outside of QA environments.
    Use a long-lived consumer via one of the supported messaging protocols.
