Subject [RELEASE] Apache Cassandra 3.11.2 released - PLEASE READ NOTICE
Date Mon, 19 Feb 2018 19:42:46 GMT

The maximum expiration timestamp that can be represented by the storage
engine is 2038-01-19T03:14:06+00:00, which means that inserts with TTL
thatl expire after this date are not currently supported. By default,
INSERTS with TTL exceeding the maximum supported date are rejected, but
it's possible to choose a different expiration overflow policy. See
CASSANDRA-14092.txt for more details.

Prior to 3.0.16 (3.0.X) and 3.11.2 (3.11.x) there was no protection
against INSERTS with TTL expiring after the maximum supported date,
causing the expiration time field to overflow and the records to expire
immediately. Clusters in the 2.X and lower series are not subject to
this when assertions are enabled. Backed up SSTables can be potentially
recovered and recovery instructions can be found on the
CASSANDRA-14092.txt file.

If you use or plan to use very large TTLS (10 to 20 years), read
CASSANDRA-14092.txt for more information.

The Cassandra team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Cassandra version 3.11.2.

Apache Cassandra is a fully distributed database. It is the right choice
when you need scalability and high availability without compromising
