Hello Kafka users, developers and client-developers,

This is the third candidate for release of Apache Kafka
2.8.0.This is a major release that includes many new
features, including:

 * Early-access release of replacing Zookeeper with a
   self-managed quorum
 * Add Describe Cluster API
 * Support mutual TLS authentication on SASL_SSL listeners
 * Ergonomic improvements to Streams TopologyTestDriver
 * Logger API improvement to respect the hierarchy
 * Request/response trace logs are now JSON-formatted
 * New API to add and remove Streams threads while running
 * New REST API to expose Connect task configurations
 * Fixed the TimeWindowDeserializer to be able to
   deserialize
   keys outside of Streams (such as in the console consumer)
 * Streams resilient improvement: new uncaught exception
   handler
 * Streams resilience improvement: automatically recover
   from transient timeout exceptions
