Infinispan chat moves to Zulip

For over 9 years Infinispan has used IRC for real-time interaction between the development team, contributors and users. While IRC has served us well over the years, we decided that the time has come to start using something better. After trying out a few "candidates" we have settled on Zulip

Zulip gives us many improvements over IRC and over many of the other alternatives out there. In particular:
  • multiple conversation streams
  • further filtered with the use of topics
  • organization management to organize users into groups
  • it's open source

So, if you want to chat with us, join us on the Infinispan Zulip Organization.

Infinispan 9.2.2.Final and 9.3.0.Alpha1 are out

We have two releases to announce:

first of all is 9.2.2.Final which introduces a second-level cache provider for the upcoming Hibernate ORM 5.3 as well as numerous bugfixes. [1]

Next is 9.3.0.Alpha1 which is the first iteration of our next release.
The main item here, aside from bugfixes and preparation work for upcoming features, is the upgrade of our server component to WildFly 12.
