Dear hakkers,

We are pleased to announce a new patch release of Akka 2.5. The release contains a set of smaller fixes.

Notable changes:

  • Avoid too early shutdown of Sharding coordinator, which could result in wrong state when graceful leaving #28093. Thanks to @retriku.
  • Backport serialization support for StreamRefs #28215
  • Backport improved ByteString.toArray performance under Scala 2.13 #28114.

A total of 8 issues were closed since 2.5.26. The complete list can be found on the 2.5.27 milestone on github.
