With this edition of our Developer Newsletter we inform you about the latest features and bug fixes of the BRIDGE 7 software components. As usual, you find all details in our release notes that are provided in our Online Documentation.
As we have already communicated with our Developer News 2017.4, BRIDGE 5.1 has reached the end of its life-cycle and will no longer be supported.
Together with that, support for Windows and Linux 32-bit platforms has terminated. As of Runtime 2019.1, only builds for Windows and Linux 64-bit are available.
End of this year, BRIDGE 6 will reach the end of its active phase and switch to maintenance phase. In maintenance phase, you will continue to get bug fixes for BRIDGE 6. New features and improvements will be implemented to the latest BRIDGE version, however.
With API Management 7.3.0, we fixed 11 bugs, added 2 new features and 14 improvements, and contributed 5 pull requests to the original apiman project. We continued to improve the setup and installation process to make it even easier to get started – so have a look at our brand new API Management Installation Guide . This guide now also contains a section that describes all steps for updating an API Management installation.
You can install API Management in a distributed and/or clustered setup:
