github grpc/grpc-go v1.30.0
Release 1.30.0

API Changes

  • This release adds an xDS URI scheme called xds. This is the stable version of the scheme xds-experimental that was introduced in v1.28.0. xds-experimental scheme will be removed in subsequent releases so you must switch to xds scheme instead. xds scheme is a client side implementation of xDSv2 APIs. This allows a gRPC client written in Go to receive configuration from an xDSv2 API compatible server and use that configuration to load balance RPCs. In this release, only the virtual host matching, default path (“” or “/”) matching and cluster route action are supported. The features supported in a given release are documented here.
