RC1 of Strimzi Kafka OAuth library 0.2.0

Jakub Scholz
 

Hi,

Release Candidate 1 of the 0.2.0 version of the Strimzi KAfka OAuth library is now available for testing: https://github.com/strimzi/strimzi-kafka-oauth/releases/tag/0.2.0-rc1. The main improvement is improved support for other OAuth servers than just Keycloak. To test it, you can use the staging Maven repository:

    <repository>
      <id>staging</id>
      <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/iostrimzi-1046/</url>
    </repository>
  </repositories>


Any feedback can be provided here or as a GitHub issue.

Thanks & Regards
Jakub
