Infinispan is 10 years old this month, and what better way to celebrate than with a brand new Final release !!!
Infinispan 9.4 comes with the following new features / improvements:
Segments everywhere 9.3 brought the segmented on-heap memory container. 9.4 extends this to provide the benefits of segmentation to off-heap as well as all of the core cache stores. Watch as your bulk operations (size, iteration, streams) get a big performance boost !
Transcoding everywhere To paraphrase the Grand Moff Tarkin, “The last remnants of Compatibility Mode have been swept away”. Transcoding, i.e. the ability to transparently convert between a number of formats across different endpoints, is now “fully operational”.
Transactions everywhere Hot Rod transactions now support recovery.
Hot Rod client improvements The Hot Rod client has received many improvements:
Client-side statistics, complete with JMX support
Improvements to the scalability and the behaviour of near-caches
All of the configuration can now be supplied via the properties, which also means easier integration with other frameworks, such as Spring Boot.
Query improvements Many cleanups and improvements
Bugfixes, stability, reliability Although not as exciting as new features, we continued our work to improve the stability, reliability and performance of all aspects of Infinispan.
As usual the latest and greatest JGroups 4.0.15
The server is now based on WildFly 14
