Subject Request For 0.6.12 Release
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 01:01:04 GMT
The latest official 0.6.x releases, 0.6.10 and 0.6.11, have a very serious
bug/regression when performing some quorum reads (CASSANDRA-2081), which is
fixed in the head of the 0.6 branch. If there aren't any plans to cut 0.6.12
any time soon, as an end user, I request that an official and "blessed"
release of 0.6.x be made ASAP.

 

On a related note, I am frustrated that such a serious issue has lingered in
the "latest oldstable release." I would have liked to see one or more of the
following:

 

1)      The issue documented prominently on the apache.org web site and
inside the download archive so end users would know they are downloading and
running known-broken software

2)      The 0.6.10 and 0.6.11 builds pulled after identification of the
issue

3)      A 0.6.12 release cut immediately (with reasonable time for testing,
of course) to address the issue

 

I understand that releases may not always be as stable as we all desire.
But, I hope that when future bugs affecting the bread and butter properties
of a distributed storage engine surface (especially when they are
regressions) that the official project response (preferably via mailing list
and the web site) is swift and maximizes the potential for data integrity
and availability.

 

If there is anything I can do to help the process, I'd gladly give some of
my time to help the overall community.
