Subject [RELEASE] Apache Cassandra 1.1 released
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 13:49:39 GMT
The Cassandra team is very pleased to announce the release of Apache Cassandra
version 1.1.0. Cassandra 1.1.0 is a new major release for the Apache Cassandra
distributed database. This version adds numerous improvements[1,2], amongst
    - Schema updates have been reworked and conflict from concurrent updates
      are now automatically resolved[4]
    - It introduces a new major revision of the Cassandra Query Language:
      CQL v3.0[5], even though CQL 2.0 is still supported and the default.
    - Updates within a row are now made in isolation[6].
    - Finer-grained control over data directories placement[7].
    - Global row and key caches for easier configuration
    - And much more...

And as is the rule for some time now, rolling upgrades from previous versions
are supported, but make sure to have a look at the release notes[2] before

Both source and binary distributions of Cassandra 1.1.0 can be downloaded at:

Or you can use the debian package available from the project APT repository[3]
(you will need to use the 11x series).
