Ranch 1.7

2018 14 Nov

Ranch 1.7.0 has been released!

This release adds built-in support for the PROXY protocol.

The PROXY protocol is a simple and efficient way for proxies to transmit information about the client.

While a third-party library already existed, it was not entirely compatible with the Ranch interface, in particular when socket active mode was involved. This new implementation fixes that and supports the full protocol with as little overhead as possible compared to normal operations: just one extra function call.

A complete list of changes can be found in the migration guide: Migrating from Ranch 1.6 to 1.7.

You can donate to this project via GitHub Sponsors. These funds are used to pay for additional servers for testing and allow to me allocate more days to open source work. Thanks in advance!

As usual, feedback is appreciated, and issues or questions should be sent via Github tickets. Thanks!
