Last November, we released Confluent 3.1, with new connectors, clients, and Enterprise features. Today, we’re pleased to announce Confluent 3.1.2, a patch release which incorporates the latest stable version of Apache Kafka, 0.10.1.1.
The 0.10.1.1 release fixes a total of 30 issues, out of which 24 are bug fixes and 6 are general improvements. We recommend all users upgrade to this release by bumping up the version of your Kafka dependencies to 0.10.1.1 (Confluent users: 0.10.1.1-cp1) in your applications and updating the binary installations on server machines.
Here’s a quick overview of the most notable fixes in this release, grouped by the affected component. For a full list of Kafka-related improvements for this release, see the Apache Kafka release notes.
