Spring Cloud Stream Ditmars/1.3 Release Candidate Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the release candidate Spring Cloud Stream Ditmars.RC1 is available for use in the Spring Milestone repository. The release notes include relevant information about version compatibility with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Spring AMQP, and Spring for Apache Kafka.

Kafka Streams for Apache Kafka

This release targets the promotion of Kafka Streams for Apache Kafka support as a top-level project in the Apache Kafka binder implementation. With Kafka Streams for Apache Kafka positioned as a first-class citizen, developers can now build Spring Cloud Stream applications by taking advantage of the Kafka Streams API at the binding level, so that it is much simpler to implement real-time data-processing business functions. The developers can focus on the functionality as opposed to the infrastructure and the messaging middleware configuration specifics, which Spring Cloud Stream tackles head-on by addressing it out-of-the-box. In addition to writing standard stream processing applications, Spring Cloud Stream binder for Kafka Streams enables developers to write applications that leverage on the interactive query features of Kafka Streams. Check out the samples for more details.
