Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-3952) Bump Netty to 4.1
Date Sun, 21 May 2017 16:37:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-3952?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16018878#comment-16018878

Stephan Ewen commented on FLINK-3952:

True, only Hadoop's netty is shaded.

We should be able to shade Flink's Netty as well. Upgrading it to 4.1 seems harder.

It is always an issue if libraries bread their backwards compatibility within a major version

> Netty 4.1 is about to release final. This release has [a number of significant enhancements|http://netty.io/wiki/new-and-noteworthy-in-4.1.html],
and in particular I find HTTP/2 codecs to be incredibly desirable to have. 
> Additionally, hopefully, the [Hadoop patches for Netty 4.1|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11716]
get some tests and get merged, & I believe if/when that happens it'll be important for
Flink to also be using the new Netty minor version.
