Includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Security
    • For those integrating Kapacitor with Kafka, we've added support for SASL-based security authentication. This is similar to the security provided by Telegraf for integrating with Kafka.
    • We've deprecated additional ciphers that were identified as "weak" as part of the sweet32 attack. These include: DES and RC4. We have also deprecated support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1.
