Akka Projections 1.0.0 Released

Dear hakkers,

We’re proud to announce the release of Akka Projections 1.0.

Overview

In Akka Projections you process a stream of events or records from a source to a projected model or external system. Each event is associated with an offset representing the position in the stream. This offset is used for resuming the stream from that position when the projection is restarted.

As the source you can select from:

The full documentation can be found at https://doc.akka.io/docs/akka-projection/current/.

Supported by Lightbend

Starting at Akka Projections 1.0.0, this module is now officially Supported as part of a Lightbend Subscription.

API stability

We consider the API stable even though we’re still not making any bincompat promise and you should consider all the public API as ApiMayChange. It might be changed based on feedback from initial usage.

Migrating from previous Release Candidates

If you have been using a Release Candidate with JDBC or Slick, there is a small change in the offset store table. The OFFSET column has been renamed to CURRENT_OFFSET. Make sure to rename it in your existing schema before upgrading to version 1.0.0.

Contributing

Feedback, bug reports and feature requests are welcome as issues in akka-projection/issues.
