Infinispan 9.0.0.Beta1 "Ruppaner"
It took us quite a bit to get here, but we’re finally ready to announce Infinispan 9.0.0.Beta1, which comes loaded with a ton of goodies.
A new algorithm for non-transactional writes (aka the Triangle) which reduces the number of RPCs required when performing writes
A new faster internal marshaller which produced smaller payloads.
A new asynchronous interceptor core
Avoid the size of the data in the caches affecting your GC times
CaffeineMap-based bounded data container
More reliable eviction
Ickle, Infinispan’s new query language
A limited yet powerful subset of JPQL
Supports full-text predicates
The Server Admin console now supports both Standalone and Domain modes
Pluggable marshallers for Kryo and ProtoStuff
The LevelDB cache store has been replaced with the better-maintained and faster RocksDB
Spring Session support
Upgraded Spring to 4.3.4.RELEASE
We will be blogging about the above in detail over the coming weeks, including benchmarks and tutorials.
The following improvements were also present in our previous Alpha releases:
Graceful clustered shutdown / restart with persistent state
Support for streaming values over Hot Rod, useful when you are dealing with very large entries
Cloud and Containers
Out-of-the box support for Kubernetes discovery
Cache store improvements
The JDBC cache store now use transactions and upserts. Also the internal connection pool is now based on HikariCP
Also, our documentation has received a big overhaul and we believe it is vastly superior than before.
There will be one more Beta including further performance improvements as well as additional features, so stay tuned.
Infinispan 9 is codenamed "Ruppaner" in honor of the Konstanz brewery, since many of the improvements of this release have been brewed on the shores of the Bodensee !
Get it, Use it, Ask us!We’re hard at work on new features, improvements and fixes, so watch this space for more announcements!
