We're proud to announce the first Alpha release of Infinispan 7.0.0.
This release adds several new features:
- Support for clustered listeners. One of the limitation of Infinispan's distributed mode used to be that listeners could only receive events for cache modifications on their own node. That's no longer the case, and it paves the way for a long-requested feature: HotRod listeners.
- Map/Reduce tasks can now execute the mapper/combiner/reducer on multiple threads. Stay tuned for more Map/Reduce improvements in the near future.
- The first essential component of cache security has been added, which will be the building block for remote protocol authentication and authorization.
- Improved OSGi support in the HotRod Java client. The core components are also getting into shape for OSGi, expect more on this front in the next release.
As you can see, many of the new features are stepping stones for bigger things yet to come. Feel free to join us and shape the future releases on our forums, our mailing lists or our #infinispan IRC channel.
