The major highlights of this release are the new Image VMOD that enables image conversions from VCL, and also the new Slicer VMOD that can transparently break down very large objects into smaller parts that are individually cached.
Also in this release are several bug fixes.
Introduce VMOD Image including a function to convert JPEG and PNG images to WebP images.
Introduce the new Slicer VMOD and accompanying core features. This makes it possible to transparently break down very large objects into smaller parts that are individually cached. For more information see the Slicer VMOD documentation page at https://docs.varnish-software.com/varnish-cache-plus/vmods/slicer/ .

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
