I'm very glad to announce first CR from the 5.2 branch. This contains a handful of fixes and enhancements especially around non-blocking state transfer functionality (refer to the release note for complete lists).
Also here's an summary of the main features that are being developed in Infinispan 5.2:
- The non-blocking state transfer functionality 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)
- Various fixes and improvements for the Map/Reduce framework
You can download the distribution or the maven artifact. If you have any questions please check our forums, our mailing lists or ping us directly on IRC!
