Cowboy 2.7.0 has been released!

Cowboy is a small, fast and modern HTTP server for Erlang/OTP.

Cowboy aims to provide a complete modern Web stack. This includes 
HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2, Websocket, Server-Sent Events and Webmachine-based REST.

Cowboy 2.7 improves the HTTP/2 code with optimizations around the 
sending of DATA and WINDOW_UPDATE frames; graceful shutdown of the 
connection when the client is going away; and rate limiting mechanisms. 
New options and mechanisms have also been added to control the amount of 
memory Cowboy ends up using with both HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2. Much, but not 
all, of this work was done to address HTTP/2 CVEs about potential denial 
of service.

In addition, many of the experimental features introduced in previous 
releases have been marked stable and are now documented.
