The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache
This is a bug fix release that fixes 53 issues in

All of the changes in this release can be found in the release notes:

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

** 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.
