Subject [ANNOUCE] Apache Kafka Released
Date Tue, 24 May 2016 16:24:50 GMT
The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache
This is a major release with exciting new features, including first
release of KafkaStreams and many other improvements.

All of the changes in this release can be found:

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
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

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