Infinispan 9.0.0.Alpha1 is out!

Dear Infinispan community,

it is with great pleasure that we are announcing the release of Infinispan 9.0.0.Alpha1 the first release of the Infinispan 9 series.

We plan to do many exciting things in Infinispan 9.x, and this release is just one of many stepping-stones that will get us there. Here’s what’s included with Alpha1:

  • Graceful clustered shutdown / restart with persistent state

  • The REST cache store has a shiny new Netty-based backend, courtesy of Antoine Toulme

  • and many, many bugfixes: consult our issue tracker for a list of things we have fixed. 

A new major release is also the moment to peform some "spring-cleaning" (pun intended):

  • We’ve removed Spring 3.x support

  • We’ve removed our home-brew map/reduce implementation. By now you should be using the wonderful Streams-based API instead which are much nicer and provide better performance

  • We’ve dropped our custom NotifyingListeners in favour of Java’s standard CompletableFuture

Don’t forget to check-out our roadmap to see the schedule and the things we want to do
