Alpakka Kafka 2.1.0-RC1 released

Dear hakkers,

Alpakka Kafka 2.1.0-RC1 uses Apache Kafka 2.7.0 and Akka 2.6. Please give this release a spin and report any issues so we can cut a final release soon.

Noteworthy changes

  • Kafka 2.7.0 client
  • Akka 2.6.x (dropped Akka 2.5)
  • Scala 2.12 and 2.13 (dropped Scala 2.11)
  • Testkit: use ScalaTest 3.1.x
  • Testkit: default to use Confluent Platform 6.1.1
  • Testkit: no longer support Embedded Kafka (Kafka 2.6.0 can’t be safely embedded in Scala applications)
  • Add configurable protection against server-bug induced resets
  • Don’t depend on scalatest in testcontainer singleton
