Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: About Cassandra stable version having Java 17 support

Short answer:

There's no definite answer to that question.


Longer answer:

I doubt such date has already been decided. It's largely driven by the 
time required to fix known issues and any potential new issues 
discovered during the BETA and RC process. If you want to track the 
progress, feel free to look at the project's Jira boards, there's a 5.0 
GA board dedicated for that.


Furthermore, it's likely there will only be an experimental support for 
Java 17 in Cassandra 5.0, which means it shouldn't be used on production 
environments.


So, would you like to keep waiting indefinitely for the Java 17 official 
support, or run Cassandra 4.1 on Java 11 today and upgrade when newer 
version becomes available?

As Cassandra has moved to Java 17 in it's *5.0-BETA1* (Latest release 
on 2023-12-05). Can you please let us know when the team is planning 
to GA Cassandra 5.0 version which has Java 17 support?

Why Java 17? It makes no sense to choose an officially non-supported 
library version for a piece of software. That decision making process 
is the problem, not the software's library version compatibility.
