Akka 2.4.16 Released!
December 20 2016
Patrik Nordwall

Dear hakkers,

We are proud to announce Akka 2.4.16, which is another maintenance release of Akka 2.4.

Some notable improvements and bug fixes are:

  • durable storage of Distributed Data, #21645
  • API for ActorSystemSettings, #21894
  • optimize monitoring SPI for Artery, #21924
  • fix regression that caused sharding entities to not always be restarted when coordinator is moved to another node, #21892
  • treat NotSerializableException from deserialization as transient problem in remoting, #20641

The observant reader might notice that we skipped 2.4.15. It was dead on arrival because it was released from the wrong branch.

Credits

A total 41 issues were closed since 2.4.14.

The complete list of closed issues can be found on the 2.4.16 milestones on github.

For this release we had the help of 15 committers – thank you all very much!
