The following features and functionality are new in BlueCat Gateway v22.4.1:
Improved TLS/SSL security
Upload of TLS/SSL certificates through the Gateway UI
You can now upload the gateway.crt and gateway.key certificate files (that Gateway uses for HTTPS communications) from the Certificates tab of Gateway's General Configuration page. You can still upload them directly to the certificates/server folder if you prefer.
Updated default theme
The default visual theme has been changed to align with other BlueCat products that Gateway works with.
Improved IPv6 support
Gateway is now fully validated and certified with Integrity 9.4.0's IPv6 Transport feature within an IPv6-only environment.
Entity export API wrapper
The new API wrapper export_entities supports the export of objects or entity details for general use.
API support for High Availability of BDDS
Dynamic deployment API support
UDL management API support
Encrypted communication API support
Improved API security
When HTTPS and HTTP are not specified in a URL, the API client now assumes HTTPS by default.
Simplifications to the Environment and Platform classes
The class bluecat.gateway.platform.Platform is no longer initialized with an instance of Environment. Instead, it now uses an appropriate path-like object (such as str or Path).
Internal package name change
The package internal has been renamed as _internal to comply with standard Python naming conventions for non-public items and objects.
The logger used for user-specific messages (g.user.logger) now strictly behaves as a LoggerAdapter from the standard Python library. For example, g.user.logger does not support the parameter msg_type.
BAM Python API Level 1 wrappers (Phase VI)
BlueCat Gateway continues the delivery of the BAM Python API Level 1 wrappers.

Experimental GraphQL support
This release includes an experimental GraphQL API support. Harness the power and flexibility of GraphQL to fetch Address Manager data simply and efficiently. While this functionality is not intended or planned for large data set retrieval, it can improve efficiency in the retrieval of small but relevant data.
