So we've done it, finally - As of Tyk 1.5 the licenses for the dashboard and the hot-reload agent are no more. The dashboard, the hot reload agent, the advanced management API, they are all free to use now, with no limitations. We're incredibly happy about this, because putting restrictions on your software is a little like shooting yourself in the knee and then jumping down a flight of stairs. It's cruel, painful, and completely unnecessary.
We want everyone to use our software, so we've set it free. existing license holder don't need to worry, you still get exclusive access to new releases, an inside-track on new developments and dedicated support.
On the subject of support - we've now created dedicated support tiers which can be purchased annually or monthly, existing license holders will fall into the basic support group (with extra love in our hearts, so don't expect the limits to be strict).
With Tyk 1.5 come three lovely new features:
- Caching - finally
- Body and Header modification on the fly (without scripting middleware), this is fast.
- A shiny new API designer for the dashboard that makes it super imple to set up API's, mocks and endpoints - it's really very pretty
