BETA is out!!

I’ve just released the long-awaited first beta of Infinispan 4.2.0, codenamed Ursus.  The blocker that’s been keeping Ursus in Alpha for so long - ISPN-180 - is now complete and ready for you to take out for a spin.  Thanks to the work put in by Mircea and Vladimir, ISPN-180 adds support in the distribution algorithm to detect whether Infinispan instances are co-located on the same physical server (or even the same rack) and pick secondary owners of data with this knowledge in mind. This helps ensure maximum durability of data, so if physical machines - or even an entire rack - were to fail, data is not lost.  For more details on ISPN-180, have a look at this wiki page which details its use.

The JOPR/RHQ plugin now works in multi cache manager environments (ISPN-675) and thanks to ISPN-754, cache manager instances can be easily identified when using the JOPR/RHQ management GUI.  As a result of ISPN-754, JMX object names follow best practices as set up by Sun/Oracle and so this means that object names exported to JMX have changed from this version onwards. See this wiki page for detailed information.

For a list of all fixes since Alpha5, have a look at the release notes in JIRA, and as always, download the release here, and let us know what you think using the user forums.

Onward to release candidate and final release phases!  :-)

Enjoy, Manik
