Coprocessing, distributed caching, and JWT auth in the router
Apollo Router 1.12 comes with several exciting new features for GraphOS Enterprise. You can now extend the router with any programming language via the new “coprocessors” feature. Your router can also cache automatic persisted queries in Redis and validate JSON web tokens before calling your subgraphs. For the full details, check out the announcement blog post.

Last week, we missed a piece of the Volvo Car Mobility story, but no worries, this knowledge is evergreen! The N+1 problem requires care to avoid in every type of API. In GraphQL, this is typically solved by adding data loaders to your resolvers—but it can be easy to forget that even resolvers returning a single object should use data loaders. “Using Data Loaders with Apollo Federation” discusses why data loaders are important in entity resolvers and how you can implement them in Kotlin.
