Akka 2.6.0-RC2 released

Dear hakkers,

A few critical issues were found in 2.6.0-RC1. They have been fixed and we have published the second release candidate, 2.6.0-RC2.

  • Fix problem with tagged events from EventSourcedBehavior when using the Cassandra plugin for Akka Persistence #28060
  • Fix deadlock when creating legacy system materializer from extensions #28037
  • Fix unsubscribe in Distributed Data Typed #28061

A total of 12 issues were closed since 2.6.0-RC1. The complete list can be found on the 2.6.0-RC2 milestone on github.

We intend to publish the final 2.6.0 within a few weeks, unless any critical issues are reported. Please help by trying the release candidate with your application or library.

Highlights of upcoming Akka 2.6.0 are new APIs with type-safety for Akka Actors, and better stability for Akka Cluster with Artery and improved serialization.

Read the RC1 announcement for more information about the upcoming Akka 2.6.0.
