Infinispan 9.3.0.CR1

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

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).

As usual, you can find all the bits on our website. If you find any issues, don’t hesitate to report them on our issue tracker.

Infinispan 9.0.0.CR4


Dear Infinispan users, we thought CR3 was going to be the last candidate release before Final…​ but we were mistaken!

The reason for yet another CR is that we decided to make some changes which affect some default behaviours:

  • enabling optimistic transactions with repeatable read now turns on write-skew by default

  • retrieving an already configured cache by passing in a template doesn’t redefine that cache’s configuration

Other important changes:

  • big improvements to the client/server rolling upgrade process

  • allow indexes to be stored in off-heap caches

  • lots of bug fixes

For the full list of changes check the release notes, download the 9.0.0.CR4 release and let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Cheers, The Infinispan team
