Dapr v1.4 is now available

We are excited to announce the release of Dapr v1.4!

This is the fourth minor version update since the announcement of Dapr v1.0.

Release highlights

If you’re new to Dapr, familiarize yourself by visiting the getting started page.

Service invocation

  • Added an HTTP proxy feature for service to service calls similar to gRPC proxy #3546. Now it’s easier to use Dapr features with existing HTTP client code. Simply add a line of metadata with your appid, and call the service (without using Dapr’s special URLs or requiring Dapr SDK for service invoke). For more info, see the docs.


  • Enabled pub/sub subscribers to perform message routing and filtering based on expressions applied to CloudEvents fields (preview feature). #2582. For more info, see the docs.

State management

  • Added automatic encryption of data with support for key rotation (preview feature) #1090. Enable automatic data-at-rest encryption of your state with support for bringing-your-own-key and key rotation. Supports all Dapr state stores. For more info, see the docs.


  • Added the option to specify an HTTP endpoint route for input bindings #3520. For more info, see the docs.

Release notes

This release contains a few breaking changes.

Supported releases

Dapr supports two (2) prior versions from the current release.

This means that there is a rolling window that moves forward for supported releases and it is your operational responsibility to remain up to date with these supported versions. If you have an older version of Dapr you may have to do intermediate upgrades to get to a supported version.

Since this release marks v1.4.0, the two prior supported versions are v1.2.0 and v1.3.0.

Please visit the Dapr Documentation for more information on supported releases.
