Hello Kafka users, developers and client-developers, This is the second candidate for release of Apache Kafka 1.0.1.
This is a bugfix release for the 1.0 branch that was first released with 1.0.0 about 3 months ago. We've fixed 49 significant issues since that release. Most of these are non-critical, but in aggregate these fixes will have significant impact. A few of the more significant fixes include: * KAFKA-6277: Make loadClass thread-safe for class loaders of Connect plugins * KAFKA-6185: Selector memory leak with high likelihood of OOM in case of down conversion * KAFKA-6269: KTable state restore fails after rebalance * KAFKA-6190: GlobalKTable never finishes restoring when consuming transactional messages * KAFKA-6529: Stop file descriptor leak when client disconnects with staged receives Release notes for the 1.0.1 release: http://home.apache.org/~ewencp/kafka-1.0.1-rc1/RELEASE_NOTES.html *** Please download, test and vote by Thursday, Feb 15, 5pm PT *** Kafka's KEYS file containing PGP keys we use to sign the release: http://kafka.apache.org/KEYS * Release artifacts to be voted upon (source and binary): http://home.apache.org/~ewencp/kafka-1.0.1-rc1/ * Maven artifacts to be voted upon: https://repository.apache.org/content/groups/staging/ * Javadoc: http://home.apache.org/~ewencp/kafka-1.0.1-rc1/javadoc/ * Tag to be voted upon (off 1.0 branch) is the 1.0.1 tag: https://github.com/apache/kafka/tree/1.0.1-rc1 * Documentation: http://kafka.apache.org/10/documentation.html * Protocol: http://kafka.apache.org/10/protocol.html Thanks, Ewen Cheslack-Postava
