Today marks a milestone in our journey with Gloo, our Envoy Proxy based API Gateway as we reach 1.0. We are especially excited to celebrate this milestone with the community — our customers, open source users and partners that spent the time to provide feedback, file issues, pull requests, integrate Gloo with their technology and share that back out with the community.
