Dear Infinispan Community,
we’re glad to announce that 9.3.0.CR1 is out!
This is the first release which works with both Java 8 and Java 10. Pre-releases of Java 11 work too. Note that Infinispan still only works in classpath mode.
Highlights of this release include:
Expanded transaction support in Hot Rod, which can now participate in Java transactions via Sync or Xa enlistment. Transaction recovery isn’t supported yet.
Caches can now configure the maximum number of attempts to start a CacheWriter/CacheLoader on startup before cache creation fails.
Write-behind stores are now fault-tolerant by default
Segmented On-Heap Data Container improves stream operation performance
We have introduced several WildFly feature packs to make it easier for Infinispan to be utilised on WildFly instances via the Server Provisioning Plugin. The following feature packs have been created:
infinispan-feature-pack-client: all of the modules required to connect to a hotrod server via the client
infinispan-feature-pack-embedded: the modules required for embedded instances of Infinispan
infinispan-feature-pack-embedded-query: the same as above but with query capabilities
infinispan-feature-pack-wf-modules: this is equivalent to the wildfly-modules.zip
2-Level cache now works with Hibernate ORM 5.3
The server now allows multiple protocols with a Single Port. The initial version supports HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and Hot Rod. Switching protocols can be done using TLS/ALPN and HTTP/1.1 Upgrade header.
Admin console - improved all editors (schema, scripts, JSON data) to include syntax highlighting
Component Upgrades: Hibernate Search 5.10 and Hibernate ORM 5.3
Numerous bug fixes which improve stability are also included (here is the full list of the solved issues).
