Dear hakkers,

we—the Akka committers—are proud to announce a new patch release of Akka 2.4. This release contains a number of minor improvements and fixes spread out across many of the Akka modules and the documentation. Some noteworthy changes in the 2.4.7 release are:

  • A resource leak in remoting fixed, and this also solved a problem when quickly reconnecting a cluster node multiple times in a sequence (#20523, #20639)
  • Easy usage of a circuit breaker from the HTTP routing DSLs (#20198)
  • Akka persistence now has got a timeout for recovery events (#20698)

The full list of changes since the last milestone is available under the 2.4.7 milestone on github for your reference.
