Subject Re: Kafka compatibility with ZK
Date Sun, 02 Aug 2020 18:16:06 GMT
Hi Andrey,

ZK 3.4.6 probably works, but we haven't tested with that version for a
while. Generally, we recommend upgrading to the latest bug fix release of
ZooKeeper (3.4.13, 3.5.8) as they tend to include important fixes. However,
you can do that in your own time, independently of the Kafka upgrade.
