Do we have a release date yet for a compatible version of Akka Management?


(Patrik Nordwall) #3

@nathanmbrown Could you share what is not working with Akka Management 0.20.0 and Akka 2.5.19? Do you see an error?


(Nathan Brown) #4

Hi Patrik,

Due to the warning above i.e. ‘old version of Akka Management won’t work with the Akka Discovery module’ we haven’t actually tried moving to it yet, as we assumed it would cause issues.
Are all the latest versions of Akka/Akka HTTP/Akka Management compatible then?

Regards,
Nathan.

Ah, I see how it can be interpreted in that way. It’s only a problem if you for some reason try to use the new akka-discovery module together with Akka Management 0.20.0, but that is not something that is a problem if you use any of the other modules in Akka (such as akka-actor or akka-cluster).
