We’ve just released Gatling 3.6.0 and Gatling FrontLine 1.14.0, we hope you’ll enjoy them!
What’s new in Gatling 3.6.0?
This work was a great example of open-source collaboration:
- the original C and JNI code originates from ,
- built a cross compiled JNI wrapper named ,
- Our own built a Docker based compilation toolchain for Brotli4j to make it compatible with old distributions such as CentOS6,
- Our own contributed a decoder based on Brotli4j to so that it could be used not only in Gatling but also in every Netty–based projects.
This release also bring lots of bug fixes, in particular on HTTP/2 support and Async DNS resolution. Both features now show very good results and stability and are past the experimental state.
We finally want to express our gratitude to all our awesome contributors who helped with this release:
Gatling FrontLine 1.13 of course brings support for Gatling 3.6, while retaining support Gatling 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 so that our customers can progressively upgrade their tests.
Highlighted features are:
- We‘ve improved the user experience when Simulation crashes on boot because of a user error (no more retries).
- Users can now configure multiple subnets when deploying on AWS to cope with AWS insufficient capacity in a given subnet.
- Users can now fully configure the Java driver, eg for encrypting connection with TLS.
We are looking forward to getting your feedback!
The Gatling team
