Dear Infinispan Community,
Two new releases are ready for you today, our newest and greatest 9.2.0.Beta1 and an updated Final of our stable branch, 9.1.3. Both can be found as usual on our download page.
The highlights of 9.2.0.Beta1 are:
New API for querying using Ickle via the REST server, taking advantage of the JSON/Protobuf interoperability [ISPN-8113].
Clustered Locks, first experimental release. A ClusteredLock is a data structure used for concurrent programming between Infinispan instances in cluster mode.
Clustered Counters have received serveral improvements. It’s now possible to manage your counters via JMX [ISPN-7926] and other management methods are on the way. The strong counter has a new method: compare-and-swap [ISPN-8489]. If you used compare-and-set, the compare-and-swap may improve your code performance. And last but not least, a new sync() method was added to the strong and weak counters, useful if you don’t want to handle the CompletableFuture! https://issues.jboss.org/browse/ISPN-8379
Clustered Cache Configuration: Both EmbeddedCacheManager and RemoteCacheManager now have an API for creating/removing caches across the cluster [ISPN-7776]. Caches created with this API will also be created on any new members that will join the cluster. Additionally, the configuration for caches created in this way can be made persistent so that they are automatically recreated when a cluster restarts.
9.1.3.Final and 9.2.0.Beta1 both add several Off-heap improvements and fixes.
We have even more exciting stuff coming up for Infinispan 9.2. Thank you for following us and stay tuned!
The Infinispan Team
