Re: Missing random partitioner in kafka 0.8
Hi Aniket,  I need to create a JIRA and upload a patch for review to fix that.  

New improvements were made for important use cases that replaced the default which I will move to another partitioner so folks can use it and revert the original restoring expected default out of the box behavior.  I should be able todo that today.  Here is the detail thread on it
