Dear hakkers,

We have expedited the 2.4.4 release due to a few annoying bugs in 2.4.3.

Important fixes:

  • Enable streaming responses with ‘Connection: close’, issue #20254
  • NPE in ConsistentHashingRouter for SimpleDnsManager, issue #20263
  • Streams wiring should work in arbitrary nest levels far from original module, issue #20216
  • Fixed dangerous sharing of state in HTTP’s connection management (thanks Samuel Tardieu and Mark van der Tol!), issues #20228 #20080
  • Fix and enable Server Name Indication configuration via ssl-config, issue #20214

Several other things were also improved, see the 2.4.4 milestone on github
