Master Collaborator

Dear CDH Users,



We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Distribution of Apache Kafka 1.3.1 for CDH 5.  Apache Kafka is a distributed publish-subscribe messaging system.  This is a maintenance release that fixes key issues, including:


  • KAFKA-972 - MetadataRequest returns stale list of brokers

  • KAFKA-1367 - Broker topic metadata not kept in sync with ZooKeeper

  • KAFKA-1867 - liveBroker list not updated on a cluster with no topics

  • KAFKA-2308 - New producer + Snappy face un-compression errors after broker restart

  • KAFKA-2317 - De-register isrChangeNotificationListener on controller resignation

  • KAFKA-2337 - Verify that metric names will not collide when creating new topics

We look forward to you trying it out, using the information below:
