+More modules available
+Varnish has an ecosystem for third-party modules (vmods). New since
+the last release, these are worth knowing about:
+libvmod-saintmode: Saint mode ("inferred health probes from traffic") was taken
+out of Varnish core in 4.0, and is now back as a separate vmod. This is useful
+for detecting failing backends before the health probes pick it up.
+libvmod-xkey: Secondary hash keys for cache objects, based on the hashtwo vmod
+written by Varnish Software. Allows for arbitrary grouping of objects to be
+purged in one go, avoiding use of ban invalidation. Also known as Cache Keys or
+Surrogate Key support.
+libvmod-rtstatus: Real time statistics dashboard.
