I am pleased to announce the much awaited final release of Infinispan 5.2.0. With more than 100 new features and enhancements and 150 bug fixes this the most stable Infinispan version to date.
- The non-blocking state transfer which is a much more efficient and flexible implementation of the functionality that allows Infinispan to serve requests during nodes joining/leaving.
- The cross-site replication functionality which allows backing up data between geographically distributed clusters in order to protect against catastrophic failures
- Rolling upgrades of the hotrod clusters (zero downtime for upgrades)
- A handful of fixes and improvements for the Map/Reduce framework
This release has spread over a period of 8 months, with a total of 4 Alpha, 6 Beta and 3 CR releases: a sustained effort from the core development team, QA team and our growing community - a BIG thanks to everybody involved!
