Akka 2.3.16 Released!

Dear hAkkers,

We—the Akka committers—are pleased to be able to announce the availability of Akka 2.3.16. This is the 16th maintenance release of the 2.3 branch. This release contains three bugfixes:

  • Wraparound issue with the scheduler causing it to stop function correctly 20424
  • Issue in ConsistentHashingRouter causing problems for DNS resolution in Akka 20263
  • Backport of a serialization issue around scala.Option in Akka Persistence 16659

The complete list of closed tickets can be found in the 2.3.16 github issues milestone.

Akka 2.3.16 is released for Scala 2.10 and 2.11. This release is backwards binary compatible with all previous 2.3.x versions which means that the new JARs are a drop-in replacement for the old one (but not the other way around) as long as your build does not enable the inliner (Scala-only restriction). Always make sure to use at least the latest version required by any of your project’s dependencies.

Additional Release Details

The artifacts comprising this release have been published to and also to Maven Central. In addition, we adopted the sbt standard of encoding the Scala binary version in the artifact name, i.e. the core actor package’s artifactId is “akka-actor_2.10” or “akka-actor_2.11”, respectively.
