Jakub Scholz

Release Candidate 1 of the 0.8.0 version of the Strimzi Kafka OAuth library is now available for testing: https://github.com/strimzi/strimzi-kafka-oauth/releases/tag/0.8.0-rc1. Compared to RC1, it adds the custom claim checking feature and test improvements.

The main changes since 0.7.x are:
* Replaced keycloak-core library with nimbus-jose-jwt
* Option `oauth.audience` has been added to client and server configuration
* Pass the configured `oauth.scope` option on the Kafka broker as `scope` when performing clientId + secret authentication on the broker
* Support for PEM certificates

To test it, you can use the staging Maven repository:


For more details about the new features see the RELEASE_NOTES and the README files. All changes can be found under the 0.8.0 milestone.

Any feedback can be provided on the mailing list, on Slack or as a GitHub issue.
