Today we bring you a minor release for cbSecurity packed with features! Version 2.2 brings a complete overhaul of our jwt library and we have now switched over to the jwtcfml (https://forgebox.io/view/jwt-cfml) library which has given us a huge boost in capabilities especially supporting RS and ES algorithms. Check out their ForgeBox entry page to see all the features we inherit by using it.

We have also focused on improving our JWT and API security on this release, so check out the release notes for all the goodness!
