Yes, things have been quiet on this blog as of late, but a lot has been going on. Let’s start with the big news. After much work on feedback reported on the last Radegast release candidate, Infinispan 4.1.0.FINAL is finally ready. Many thanks to the community who have worked tirelessly in testing stuff, reporting stuff.
This is a very important release. If you are using 4.0.0 (Starobrno), I strongly recommend upgrading to Radegast as we have a whole host of big fixes, performance improvements and new features for you. A full changelog is available on JIRA, but a few key features to note are server endpoints, a Java-based client for the Hot Rod protocol, and the new LIRS eviction algorithm.
The other interesting piece of news is the announcement of a 4.2.0 release. We’ve decided to take a few key new features from 5.0.0 and release them earlier, as 4.2.0 - codenamed Ursus. If you are interested in what’s going to be in Ursus, have a look at this feature set, and expect a beta on Ursus pretty soon now!

As much as I expected 4.1.0.CR2 to be the last release candidate before a final release, we’ve decided to release another candidate for you to try out before pushing out a final release. CR3 is now out and ready to roll.
There has been a lot of activity in the Infinispan community over the last 3 weeks, with lots of people putting CR2 through its paces, and reporting everything from the trivial through to the critical. This is awesome stuff, folks - keep it up!
This release has fixed a whole bunch of things you guys have reported. Many thanks to Galder, Mircea, Vladimir and Sanne, working hard around vacations to get this release out.
Detailed release note reports are on JIRA, and it can be downloaded in the usual place. Use the forums and report stuff - push this as hard as you’ve been pushing CR2 and we will have that rock-solid final release we all want!

I’ve just cut Infinispan 4.1.0.ALPHA3, codenamed Radegast. This release contains a number of fixes and bugs reported in 4.0.0 Starobrno as well as earlier alphas, and is quite likely to be the last alpha before a feature-complete 4.1.0.BETA1 is released.
If you use Maven, please note, we now use the new JBoss Nexus-based Maven repository. The Maven coordinates for Infinispan are still the same (groud id org.infinispan, artifact id infinispan-core, etc) but the repository you need to point to has changed. Setting up your Maven settings.xml is described here.
