Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Apex Malhar 3.7.0 released
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2017 14:33:12 GMT
Dear Community,

The Apache Apex community is pleased to announce release 3.7.0 of the Apex
Malhar library.

Apache Apex is an enterprise grade big data-in-motion platform that unifies
stream and batch processing. Apex was built for scalability and low-latency
processing, high availability and operability. The Apex engine is
supplemented by Malhar, the library of pre-built operators, including
connectors that integrate with many existing technologies as sources and
destinations, like message buses, databases, files or social media feeds.

This release adds a number of new operators, including S3 line reader
(parallel block based), S3 output for tuples and file copy, fixed length
parser, Redshift output, and more accumulations for the windowed operator.
The release also adds several new user documentation
<http://apex.apache.org/docs/malhar-3.7/> sections.

See full release notes
for all changes in this release.

Apex provides features that similar platforms currently don’t offer, such
as fine grained, incremental recovery to only reset the portion of a
topology that is affected by a failure, support for elastic scaling based
on the ability to acquire (and release) resources as needed as well as the
ability to alter topology and operator properties on running applications.

Apex early on brought the combination of high throughput, low latency and
fault tolerance with strong processing guarantees to the stream data
processing space and gained maturity through important production use cases
at several organizations. See the powered by page and resources on the
project web site for more information:


An easy way to get started with Apex is to pick one of the examples as
starting point. They cover many common and recurring tasks, such as data
consumption from different sources, output to various sinks, partitioning
and fault tolerance:


Apex Malhar and Core (the engine) are separate repositories and releases.
We expect more frequent releases of Malhar to roll out new connectors and
other operators based on a stable engine API. This release 3.7.0 works on
existing Apex Core 3.4.0. Users only need to upgrade the library Maven
dependency in their application project.
