Release: Cassandra 0.6.0 aka The Best Evar

Accompanied by an ASF press release[1], Cassandra has announced its first new version after graduating as a top Apache project. The code name of this release, as per the ☞ announcement, is The Best Evar and it features some cool new additions[2]:

Last, but not least, according to Jonathan Ellis ():

Apache Cassandra 0.6 is 30% faster across the board, building on our already-impressive speed

Enjoy Cassandra 0.6.0 even if you’ll need to restart your cluster to upgrade to the new version:

0.6 network traffic is not compatible with earlier versions. You will need to shut down all your nodes at once, upgrade, then restart.
