I’m not really sure how I’ve missed the release of Riak 0.12.0 last week. The ☞ release notes are listing over 30 enhancements and bug fixes. Another important update coming with Riak 0.12.0 is the improved failure recovery:
Riak now uses a new and improved mechanism for determining whether a node is fully online and ready to participate in Riak operations. This is especially important in failure recovery situations, as it allows the storage backend to complete a full integrity check and repair process.
Riak is getting closer to celebrate 1 year and there were more than 12 releases during this year. That’s a nice pace for a project!
