We're making Kafka 0.10.2 available to all our customers today, for our existing customers the updates will be rolled out starting next week.
Improved stability and enhancements
Apache Kafka version 0.10.2 brings many enhancements and bug fixes to Kafka.
Apache Kafka 0.10.2 is also groundbreaking for those who have been using the official Java client. Before the 0.10.2 release newer client versions could not talk to older cluster versions. The new Java client coming with 0.10.2 is finally able to talk to cluster versions 0.10 and 0.10.1 as well as the latest 0.10.2.
The new release comes with lots of other useful bug fixes as well. Previously for example if you deleted a topic, recreated it and tried consuming from it, Kafka would "remember" the old commit offsets. Now that's happily been fixed.
- [KAFKA-2000] - Delete consumer offsets from kafka once the topic is deleted
Another thing that people have been asking us about is that since Aiven for Apache Kafka does not give out access to Zookeeper directly, they've been not able to use Kafka streams functionality. That situation has now improved on the Apache Kafka side with the removal of the need to use Zookeeper directly.
- [KAFKA-4060] - Remove ZkClient dependency in Kafka Streams
