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.
Download it, give it a go, and talk about it on the forums. Tell your friends about it, tweet about it.
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!
