Resin 5/Baratine basically is the focus. We're trying to get out a
Our current target for the first alpha is end of Q2.
Unlike Resin 4 where the early releases forced early adopters to adapt
to the large changes and refactors, we decided to hold Resin 5 internal
until we have a clean and relatively stable release.
The changes internally are fairly major (hopefully the externals will
not look that major, except for a simplification in deployment,
particularly in cloud environments.)
* The internal database for distributed caching/sessions is
completely revamped to a more modern architecture, because the old one
wasn't scaling under heavy load.
* HTTP/2.0, including using HTTP/2.0 for load balancing (it's more
efficient than the older HMUX).
* Internal service model revamped from BAM to Baratine, using what we
learned from Resin 4.
* Cloud/clustering messaging revamp, again based on experience with
* Dynamic server/heartbeat revamp.
* Distribution/config simplification.
* Updates to web profile specs.
* Substantial accumulated technical debt cleanup.
