When is end-of-life for apache-persistence-cassandra on 2.11?


(Rob O'Doherty) #1

Hello,

Is there a roadmap for apache-persistence-cassandra on 2.11?

For how much longer can we expect updates on 2.11?

I ask because we have a large application that is built on quite an old version of apache-persistence-cassandra (0.16) and I am building a case for either migrating to 2.12 (which will be complicated for many reasons) or staying on 2.11 (which is risky for lots of reasons).

Thanks,

Rob.

Note that it is akka-persistence-cassandra, not Apache.

We’ll EOL it together with support for 2.11 in Akka, we usually keep the two latest stable Scala versions supported when we start on a new minor Akka version, AFAIR there is no planned date for that yet though.

2.12 has some other nice aspects over 2.11 and since it has been out for quite a while (2.13 being in milestone 4 by now) it sounds like a good idea to try to migrate, rather than have to do it in panic at som future point in time ;)
