Dear hakkers,

We are happy to announce the general availability of Alpakka Kafka 1.0. The artifacts are the same as the last release candidate 1.0-RC2.

Highlights of the release since 0.22 are:

  • Kafka Client has been upgraded to 2.1.0
  • No more WakeupException
  • Alpakka Kafka consumers don’t fail for non-responding Kafka brokers anymore
  • New Committer.sink and Committer.flow for standardised committing
  • Committing with metadata
  • Java APIs for all settings classes
  • Alpakka Kafka testkit

Some of these changes have been developed or initiated by the community. A big thank you to everyone involved!

For detailed changes, credits, and more on the Alpakka Kafka connector history, please see the release notes in the Alpakka Kafka connector documentation.

Happy hakking!

– The Alpakka Team
