0.8 under load may turn out to be more stable and well behaving than any release so far 

Been doing a few test runs stuffing more than 1 billion records into a 12 node cluster and thing looks better than ever. 
VM's stable and nice at 11GB. No data corruptions, dead nodes, full GC's or any of the other trouble that plagued early 0.7 releases.

Still have to test more nasty stuff like rebalancing or recovering failed nodes, but so far I would recommend anyone to consider  0.8 over 0.7.x if setting up a new system
Regards, Terje, Can you share with us a blog post or something like that your tests?
Thanks

Great work!

P.S.
 As the release of artifacts to Maven Central is now part of the
release process, the artifacts are all available from Maven Central
already (for people who use Maven/ANT+Ivy/Gradle/Buildr/etc)
