Mule Runtime 3.9.1 Release Notes

April 23, 2018

This document describes new features and enhancements, known limitations, issues, and fixes in Mule Runtime 3.9.1.

Be sure to read this document before you install this release. For reference, save these release notes to your hard drive or print a copy.

New Features and Enhancements

Regarding API Gateway capabilities:

  • This patch version ships with the OpenID Connect library missing on v3.9.0, which allows to use the out-of-the-box OpenID Connect oAuth 2.0 token enforcement policy.

  • In the previous version, in the case of APIKit based Mule apps, only the root RAML was uploaded by API Autodiscovery when the API was created. Now the root RAML and the files specified in the include entries of the RAML, which are included in the Mule application in folders which are present in the root, are also uploaded.

  • This version enhances analytics data with Host name information.

  • Outage management is improved: Backoff behavior and its corresponding logs, Gatekeeper behavior when initializing and Gatekeeper flexible mode logs on Cloudhub.

  • Security fixes.

  • DataWeave:

    • Adds support for surrogated chars in UTF-8.

    • Adds a new system property to control caches: com.mulesoft.dw.mapping.cache.size for mapping cache, com.mulesoft.dw.p_function.cache.size to control p function cache.

    • Supporting RFC 4180. Empty quotes are treated as empty values.

    • Support for underflow and overflow.

  • Mule as Websphere/Weblogic Custom Service

    • New functionality was added to manage license keys in the default OS Java preferences location. This is used for effective license verification when Mule is deployed as a Mule Websphere Custom Service.
