Akka HTTP 10.1.1 released!

Dear hakkers,

We are happy to announce the release of Akka HTTP 10.1.1, which is the first maintenance release of the Akka Http 10.1 series. If you have not yet already upgraded from 10.0, this would be a good time to do so – the update is for the most part binary and source compatible after all, and brings more features and fixes (see the 10.1.0 release annoucement for more details).

This release brings a number of small, yet long requested features, including:

  • automatic WebSocket keep-alive using Ping frames,
  • removing the need for implicit parameters in order to call Route.seal (in Scala DSL)

As usual, the release is backwards compatible as outlined in our binary compatibility guidelines.
