We are pleased to announce that these maintenance releases of Spring for Apache Kafka are now available, 1.2.0.RELEASE and 1.1.4.RELEASE.
These versions include several bug fixes and improvements, as well as introduce support for KStreams.
They are functionally equivalent; the 1.2.0.RELEASE is based on the 0.10.2.0
kafka-clients jar and 1.1.4.RELEASE can be used with 0.10.0.x and 0.10.1.x.
While 1.1.4.RELEASE will work at runtime with a 0.10.2.x client library, some breaking changes in the embedded kafka API means that the embedded kafka Junit
spring-kafka-test will not work and 1.2.0.RELEASE is required for that.
