Subject Re: Announcements List
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 16:18:57 GMT
I would like to see this list also used for announcing upcoming features. At
some point a decision is made that some future version will include some
important feature. I don't want that information to be buried in a JIRA
ticket or a user/dev list discussion.

For example, I was surprised to learn, by accident, from
http://www.slideshare.net/mattdennis/cassandra-antipatterns , that
supercolumns will be replaced, internally, by composite columns. This is
something that we've discussed in the past, and that I have advocated
myself, but until now I have seen no indication that it would be done, or
that it was even viewed favorably by a consensus of decision makers.
