We are proud to announce the release of Open Zaak 1.5.0! We have introduced
a number of new features, such as rootless container images, generic OpenID
Connect integration, performance improvements and a number of bugfixes.
Additionally, we have also updated the various deployment toolsets.
BEFORE upgrading, please make sure to read the release notes (

Additionally, Open Notificaties 1.2.1 has been released for a while without
any spotlight shining on it. The 1.2.x line also has container image best

Please note that Open Notificaties no longer supports RabbitMQ as celery
result backend. This should not be a problem if you deploy using our

Helm charts as a reference, they have been updated.
We recommend everyone to upgrade to these new versions, if only for the
better practices applied in the container images.
