    • Topics configuration: You can now reset your Topics configuration
    • IAM support: Our io.conduktor.aws.IAMClientCallbackHandler class used to configure IAM in the Platform now complies with the "credentials provider chain" mechanism of AWS.

It'll first try to find your credentials/role on your machine, as software.amazon.msk.auth.iam.IAMClientCallbackHandler would do. If nothing is found, then it'll use our mechanism. For more info, see documentation.
To summarize, our io.conduktor.aws.IAMClientCallbackHandler class can now be used as a drop-in replacement of software.amazon.msk.auth.iam.IAMClientCallbackHandler in your Kafka properties:

properties: |
  security.protocol=SASL_SSL
  sasl.mechanism=AWS_MSK_IAM
  sasl.jaas.config=software.amazon.msk.auth.iam.IAMLoginModule required;
  sasl.client.callback.handler.class=io.conduktor.aws.IAMClientCallbackHandler
