The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache
Kafka This is a bug fix release that fixes 30 issues in

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

Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with four four core APIs:

** The Producer API allows an application to publish a stream records to
one or more Kafka topics.

** The Consumer API allows an application to subscribe to one or more
topics and process the stream of records produced to them.

** The Streams API allows an application to act as a stream processor,
consuming an input stream from one or more topics and producing an output
stream to one or more output topics, effectively transforming the input
streams to output streams.

** The Connector API allows building and running reusable producers or
consumers that connect Kafka topics to existing applications or data
systems. For example, a connector to a relational database might capture
every change to a table.three key capabilities:

With these APIs, Kafka can be used for two broad classes of application:

** Building real-time streaming data pipelines that reliably get data
between systems or applications.

** Building real-time streaming applications that transform or react to the
streams of data.
