Subject Re: Latest 2.1 and Datastax driver questions...
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 02:19:21 GMT
The "run versions >= x.x.6" is IMO an out of date trope. Not only does 2.1
have more than twice as many engineers working full time on it, and five
times the QA engineers (which is cumulative with prior QA), we are also
seeing many more users in the wild running release candidates and providing
valuable feedback before release. This is evidenced by the fact there have
been six release candidates, instead of just two for 2.0.

As such, whilst no software is bug free, 2.1.0 is likely to be considerably
more stable than 2.0.0.
