This is a bugfix release fixing smaller issues, some of which was introduced in the previous feature release.
vmod_goto bug introduced in 6.0.8r2, where creating two identical
dns_director objects would trigger an assert. (VS issue #1176)
Fix a NULL pointer dereference in an error handling path in the JWT VMOD.
Fix a NULL pointer dereference when setting namespaces in the Accounting VMOD.
Fail correctly when the Stat VMOD is attempted called from Client context.
Better error handling for workspace errors when allocating fetch and delivery processors. (VS issue #1177)
Correct an H/2 buffer handling issue introduced in 6.0.8r2. (VS issue #1182)
See the change log for a full overview of new features and bug fixes in this and previous versions.
synthbackend.mirror() bug could cause corrupted objects before
causing Varnish to crash. When using
synthbackend.mirror() together with
persisted MSE, these corrupted objects could persist after the crash. If
synthbackend.mirror() together with persisted MSE before
6.0.8r1, then it is recommended to clear the cache on upgrade to this
version, unless you have already done so after upgrading to any previous
releases after 6.0.8r1.
The ABI for VMODs changed with 6.0.7r1, so every VMOD older than that, needs to be recompiled to work with the new versions. There is no API breakage, so a simple recompile should be sufficient. If you only use VMODs bundled with Varnish Cache Enterprise, you do not have to do anything, as bundled VMODs are always recompiled.
