Since then we've worked closely with the HAProxy Technologies team to provide feedback and leverage their support. We are very excited to see the 1.8r1 release which not only includes many useful capabilities, but also incorporates many of our own feature requests," said Scott Bruce, Director of Application Architecture, dataxu.
