Play 2.6.15 brings several bug fixes and performance improvements. Notable changes:

  1. Adds support for programmatically overring Akka HTTP configuration. See the documentation.
  2. Updates jackson-databind to a more secure version. If you want to have a more secure version without updating Play you can update the dependency directly.

For more details see the full list of changes and the 2.6.14 and 2.6.15 issues on GitHub.
