The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the general availability release of Apache Kafka 0.8.0.
Apache Kafka is publish-subscribe messaging system rethought as a distributed commit log.
** Fast => A single Kafka broker can handle hundreds of megabytes of reads and writes per second from thousands of clients.
** Scalable => Kafka is designed to allow a single cluster to serve as the central data backbone for a large organization. It can be elastically and transparently expanded without downtime. Data streams are partitioned and spread over a cluster of machines to allow data streams larger than the capability of any single machine and to allow clusters of co-ordinated consumers.
** Durable => Messages are persisted on disk and replicated within the cluster to prevent data loss. Each broker can handle terabytes of messages without performance impact.
** Distributed by Design => Kafka has a modern cluster-centric design that offers strong durability and fault-tolerance guarantees.
We welcome your help and feedback. For more information on how to report problems, and to get involved, visit the project website at http://kafka.apache.org/
