Varnish Purge 8.x-1.4 is out

Varnish Purge 8.x-1.4 is out

As for Purge module 8.x-3.0-beta5, creation of cache tags is removed from the Purge module itself, and should now be handled by purges instead – so from Varnish Purge 8.x-1.4 we now have a sub-module, Varnish Purger Tags, that handles the cache tags.

To use Varnish Purge with cache tags, from version 8.x-1.4, you need to activate the new sub-module. And also you need to reconfigure the Purger – because we renamed the Header for the cache tags to Cache-Tags, because we see no point calling it something else, so you also need to update your VCL file, if you using the older settings – Purge-Cache-Tags – for an example, see our example VCL.

New settings for cache tags

In the near future, we are going to move the creation of the cache tags to it’s own separate module, because I think it does not make sense to have a bunch of sub-modules for purgers doing the same thing.
