We are happy to announce Alpakka Kafka 1.1.0-RC2.
We are bumping the minor version number because of the changes to the internals of how offset commits are sent to the Kafka broker that improve performance in high throughput scenarios.
This RC2 contains adds a new source for advanced usage:
committablePartitionedManualOffsetSource which may be used when offsets are stored external to Kafka, but tools for consumer lag which rely on offsets being committed to Kafka are in use.
Please see the full release notes in the Alpakka Kafka documentation.
Alpakka Kafka 1.1.0 final will be released next week if no blocker issues will be reported with this release candidate.
