To today we’re really hapy to announce the release of version 1.8 of Tyk and version 0.9.6 of the dashboard.
Tyk v1.8 is a major evolution in the Tyk API Platform; we’ve been hard at work and focussing on bringing you increased flexibility, new resilience patterns, improved performance and innovative new features unique to Tyk. It’s been a long road, and we’ve taken our time to integrate the many new features so they work well, together.
Check out or detailed blog post on new features here, or get started right now with our new tutorial.
Highlights of this new release:
API Sharding is a an advanced new feature that lets you split APIs across distinct Tyk clusters and manage them centrally.
Resilience Patterns enable load-balancing, enforced timeouts, and circuit breakers to enhance the reliability of your services.
Service Discovery support means that you can integrate Tyk with Consul, Etcd, Eureka or any configuration management tool that has a RESTFul endpoint for self-healing architectures.
Enhanced Analytics Tagging means you can track service usage through hardware source, cluster, policy group or keys with ease, instantly. Providing unique insights into API usage.
We’ve made major changes to improve performance and stability across the board as well as some great UI enhancements to the dashboard. The full change-log can be seen here. We’ve also made major changes to the documentation, covering off more features and plugins in both the regular Tyk docs as well as for our dashboard users.
