Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Kafka 0.8.1 Released
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2014 16:31:44 GMT
The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the general availability release of Apache
Kafka 0.8.1.

The 0.8.1 release introduces log compaction
http://kafka.apache.org/documentation.html#compaction and a move to Gradle for builds.  
Other changes in this release: https://archive.apache.org/dist/kafka/0.8.1/RELEASE_NOTES.html.

Apache Kafka is high-throughput, publish-subscribe messaging system rethought of as a distributed
commit log.

** Fast => A single Kafka broker can handle hundreds of megabytes of reads and 
writes per second from thousands of clients.

** Scalable => Kafka is designed to allow a single cluster to serve as the central data
for a large organization. It can be elastically and transparently expanded without downtime.

Data streams are partitioned and spread over a cluster of machines to allow data streams 
larger than the capability of any single machine and to allow clusters of co-ordinated consumers.

** Durable => Messages are persisted on disk and replicated within the cluster to prevent

data loss. Each broker can handle terabytes of messages without performance impact.

** Distributed by Design => Kafka has a modern cluster-centric design that offers 
strong durability and fault-tolerance guarantees.
