Stale-while-revalidate / stale-if-error


#1

Are there any plans to support the stale-while-revalidate and stale-if-error Cache-Control extensions?
Spec: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5861

It would really help to cache endpoints where content generation can take up a significant amount of time. With support for these extensions, content can get revalidated asynchronously from the CDN responding to the request.


#2

Thanks for the feedback, will pass this along to the developers.


#3

@cody Cool. Any feedback from the developers already if they will put in on a roadmap and plan to implement it?


#4

Yes, they do plan to implement it. Although I don’t have an ETA for you just yet.


#5

@cody I am really looking forward to this feature. Do you have any more information on when this could land? Is it some weeks or several months?


#6

@benibu We are planning on introducing it within the next 2-4 weeks.

Status: The requested feature has been implemented.
