What’s next

Kubernetes! ⎈
We’re doing this integration right. We’ve been alpha testing with a number of large clusters and we’ve honed in on a very high-quality approach that reflects the UX Vector is going after. You can learn more in our Kubernetes Integration RFC. Do you want to beta test? Tell us!
WASM plugins 🔌
This release included an experimental implementation of a WASM transform behind a wasm build flag. We plan to stabilize WASM transforms, as well as add WASM sinks and sources, enabling you to extend Vector in the language of your choice with little performance penalty. ❤️ WASM. Check out the WASM Plugin RFC for more info.
Dynamic HTTP Rate-Limiting (AIMD)
Fiddling with rate-limits is a frustrating endeavor. If you set them too high you risk overwhelming the service; too low and you’re unnecessarily limiting throughput. What happens if you deploy a few more Vector instances? Vector is planning to solve this by automatically detecting the optimal rate limits, taking inspiration from TCP congestion control algorithms. Check out the Dynamic HTTP Rate Limiting RFC.
