I am very pleased to announce the official release of Cassandra = 0.8.0.

If you haven't been paying attention to this release, this is your = last
chance, because by this time tomorrow all your friends are going to = be
raving, and you don't want to look silly.

So why am I resorting to hyperbole?  Well, for one because this is = the
release that debuts the Cassandra Query Language (CQL).  In one = fell
swoop Cassandra has become more than NoSQL, it's MoSQL.

Cassandra also has distributed counters now.  With counters, you = can
count stuff, and counting stuff rocks.

A kickass use-case for Cassandra is spanning data-centers for
fault-tolerance and locality, but doing so has always meant sending = data
in the clear, or tunneling over a VPN.   New for 0.8.0, encryption = of
intranode traffic.

If you're not motivated to go upgrade your clusters right now, = you're
either not easily impressed, or you're very lazy.  If it's the = latter,
would it help knowing that rolling upgrades between releases is now
supported?  Yeah.  You can upgrade your 0.7 cluster to 0.8 = without
shutting it down.

You see what I mean?  Then go read the release notes[1] to learn = about
the full range of awesomeness, then grab a copy[2] and become a
(fashionably )early adopter.

Drivers for CQL are available in Python[3], Java[3], and Node.js[4].

As usual, a Debian package is available from the project's APT
repository[5].

Enjoy!
