Cassandra 0.7 Released, Lots of Goodies in the Box

The much awaited new version of Cassandra has been quietly release a couple of days ago. As mentioned in Cassandra 2010 in review, this version brings a lot of interesting new features:

  • memory efficient compactions
  • online schema changes
  • secondary indexes
  • improved performance for reads
  • upgraded Thrift

The list of updates is too long, so for start I recommend Gary Dusbabek’s nice post summarizing most important new features.

Then on Riptano’s blog, there’s a series of articles getting into the details of these features:

I guess the only major feature that was talked about and didn’t get in this release is the distributed counters, but that’s already in the Cassandra trunk, so sooner than later users will get it.

Now you can head to the download page and start upgrading your Cassandra cluster.
