Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Kafka 0.8.2.1 Released
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2015 19:01:34 GMT
The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache Kafka 0.8.2.1.

The 0.8.2.1 release fixes 4 critical issues in 0.8.2.0.

All of the changes in this release can be found: https://archive.apache.org/dist/kafka/0.8.2.1/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
backbone
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.
