Akka 2.5.26 Released

Dear hakkers,

We are pleased to announce a new patch release of Akka 2.5. The release contains a set of smaller fixes as well as updates to make it easier for libraries to support both Akka 2.5.x and 2.6.x with the same code base.

Notable changes:

  • Configurable entry time to live for the async dns #27578
  • Adapting typed actors to the akka-actor APIs with toUntyped has now been deprecated and toClassic, which is also in 2.6 should be preferred #27650
  • Streams JsonFraming now allows multiple top-level arrays #26098
  • Race condition when binding artery-tcp to port 0 fixed #27525
  • Potential resource leak on stopping a shard fixed #27647
  • Stream cancellation modes #28008

A total of 18 issues were closed since 2.5.25. The complete list can be found on the 2.5.26 milestone on github.


For this release we had the help of 9 committers – thank you all very much!
