We’re getting close to releasing Infinispan 5.1 'Brahma', and today I have the pleasure of announcing the Infinispan 5.1.0.CR1, our first release candidate. So, what’s in it?
Ahead of future eventual consistency support, Infinispan now supports versioned cache entries which means that existing write skew checks on REPEATABLE_READ caches can be done more accurately.
Support for CDI injection of remote caches! Thanks to excellent work of community contributor Kevin Pollet, you can now inject remote caches as well as embedded caches using CDI. Detailed documentation on how to use is available here. In the mean time, checkout the CDI integration module in the Infinispan source code for examples.
Finally, we’ve introduced considerable new functionality in the previous Infinispan 5.1 alpha/beta releases, and so this first release candidate contains some important fixes for the newly introduced functionality, so if you’re using any previous alpha/beta releases, please upgrade asap and provide us some feedback!
