We are very proud to announce that we have just released Search Guard 5!
Search Guard 5 is compatible with Elasticsearch 5 and offers all features of our previous Search Guard versions. Installation and configuration are nearly the same as with Search Guard 2, you can re-use all of your settings and certificates.
One noticeable change: We have bundled the SSL layer with the main plugin, just install Search Guard 5, and you’re good to go. 
For those of you who need TLS only: We still offer a standalone version of Search Guard 5 SSL!
The release version is Search Guard, and it can be found on Maven Central:
Install it directly via:
bin/elasticsearch-plugin install -b com.floragunn:search-guard-5:5.0.0-8
All enterprise modules have been released as well:
We’re super excited about this new version of Search Guard and hope you enjoy it as much as we do! A lot of things have changed under the hood, so if you find any bugs or strange behaviour, help us by reporting it on our Git Issue Tracker.
Thanks for all your support we got during the last months!
Rock on!
Your Search Guard Team
