ProxyKit - Last release and EOL.

23 Oct 2020

I've just pushed version 2.3.4 of ProxyKit to which I expect to be the final version.

I had intended do a new major version with some features and improvements expecting Microsoft's Reverse Proxy to only support .NET 5. However they have since decided to also support ASP.NET Core 3.1 and with an expected an initial release with .NET 5 so I don't want to invest any more time in it. So if you are a ProxyKit users, plan your migration.

I've closed all remaining issues that are not bugs. Apologies to those of you who were suggesting improvements that I left hanging there for some time (motivation on this took a hit).

I will take some solace in the fact that it proved that the concept of a code-first, programmable and embeddable reverse proxy is desirable (and I prefer C# to LUA anyways).

Side note: The original project name was Dotnet Extensible Reverse Proxy. I think that might have been a better name than YARP :)
