Google has added dynamic extensibility to Envoy using WebAssembly, and developed an ABI called Proxy-Wasm to ensure that extensions compiled for one version can be used in another. This ABI can be adopted by other proxies, allowing Wasm extensions, initially written for Envoy, to work anywhere. The first use of this extensibility is in the new, lower-latency Istio telemetry system. An SDK (in three languages, with more to come) and an extension hub, built by, rounds out the release.
