Infinispan 8.2.0.Beta1 and 8.1.1.Final are out!

Dear all,

We are proud to announce two releases today:

Infinispan 8.2.0.Beta1 is the first release in the 8.2 cycle. It doesn’t have big new features, but there are a few significant changes in addition to the usual bug fixes:

  • SyncConsistentHashFactory is now the default consistent hash factory (ISPN-4851). This means the owners of a key are going to be the same in all the caches, as long as the caches have the same members and the same number of owners.

  • We now have a new way for applications to determine the location of keys: the KeyPartitioner interface (ISPN-5465). In spirit it is very similar to the existing Grouper interface, but it is segment-aware. Note that none of the HotRod clients support Keypartitioner in this release.

  • We improved the rolling upgrade performance (ISPN-6046).

  • We added a new event logger that records cluster membership, cache topology, and cache availability changes (ISPN-5816). In the next release, it will also be accessible through the server’s management console.

Infinispan 8.1.1.Final includes a number of bug fixes. All users of 8.1.0.Final are encouraged to upgrade.

You can get both releases from our download page. If you are new to Infinispan, you can learn how to use it, and help us continually improve it.
