Subject [RELEASE] Apache Cassandra 0.8.3 released
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 20:49:35 GMT
The Cassandra team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Cassandra
version 0.8.3.

Cassandra is a highly scalable second-generation distributed database,
bringing together Dynamo's fully distributed design and Bigtable's
ColumnFamily-based data model. You can read more here:

Downloads of source and binary distributions are listed in our download

This version is a bug fix release[1]. In particular it fixes a fairly serious
regression of 0.8, introduced by a refactoring of the commit log due to
counters, by which some commit log segments may be deleted before the totality
of the data they contain is fully flushed. Upgrade is by consequence highly
recommended, but please always pay close attention to the release notes[2]
before upgrading.

If you were to encounter any problem, let us know[3].

Have fun!
