Release 28.0.2 contains a bunch of bug fixes and enhancements, as well as some fixes for XSS issues and a Jetty CVE.

The codename for Horizon 28.0.2 is Soundwave.

A Note About Meridian 2018 and End of Life

  • Meridian 2021 will expire in April of 2024

Meridian Point Releases

All Meridian releases this month contained security updates, so it is recommended that you upgrade.

Additionally, 2020.1.11 adds a fix for a potential OOM on the Minion if off-heap storage is enabled for forwarding.

On top of that, 2021.1.3 adds documentation fixes, and a performance enhancement to the node cache used when processing flows.
