New DSL settings

Using the DSL (domain-specific language), DevOps engineers can configure the Airlock Microgateway using common developer tools and do not have to rely on a graphical interface. This makes it easy to version the configuration in a repository and integrate it into automated build pipelines (GitOps). Many settings are now available directly in the DSL, reducing the need for workarounds such as the use of mapping templates. These settings are now available in the DSL: Custom Deny Rules, Custom Allow Rules, Custom Actions, Client Certificates, Error Page Replacement, Cookie Settings, CSRF Token, JSON Rewriting and many more.

For a complete overview and detailed changelog, please refer to the release notes, which will be published with the new release.
