Subject Re: Astyanax Thrift Frame Size Hardcoded - Breaks Ring Describe
Date Sat, 04 Apr 2015 02:18:58 GMT
Sorry, I thought it was more or less formally deprecated, but a little
quick searching doesn't support the idea.  I could swear I recall reading
an article about how Netflix had mostly transitioned to Datastax Java
Driver, but I can't find that now... so maybe it was a dream?

However the activity graph on Github, and the number of open and
unresponded issues doesn't suggest a project under active development (I
think there's 1 commit this year?).  Thrift is frozen, so even if Astyanax
is still being tended, its days are probably numbered as long as it remains
Thrift centric.

That said, I think my declaration of the death of Astyanax was probably
greatly exaggerated.
