Subject Re: Preliminary blog post about the Apache 2.6.0 release
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2020 18:40:54 GMT
Hi, Maulin.

We have traditionally not mentioned *every* KIP in the project's blog posts
-- unless a release just happens to involve a small number of KIPs. This
means that we do have to choose a subset of the KIPs -- AK 2.6.0 had 30
KIPs that were implemented, and a blog summarizing each would be too long
and much less widely received. I tried to choose KIPs that clearly impacted
the broadest set of users, and finding a subset wasn't that easy.

I chose not to include KIP-519 in the blog simply because it requires
installing and integration into the broker components that are not included
in the official distribution. I hope that helps explain my thought process.

Best regards,

Randall
