Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "July2012" page has been changed by JoelKoshy:

- (project add text here)
+ (introduced to Apache incubator on Jul 4, 2011)
+ Kafka provides an extremely high throughput distributed publish/subscribe messaging system.
Additionally, it supports relatively long term persistence of messages to support a wide variety
of consumers, partitioning of the message stream across servers and consumers, and functionality
for loading data into Apache Hadoop for offline, batch processing.
+ * A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation.
+ None. We are considering whether to pursue graduation immediately or focus exclusively on
the development of 0.8.
+ * Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of
+ None.
+ * How has the community developed since the last report
+ - The mailing list continues to be very active with bug reports, patch submissions, feature
requests and use cases. [(Apr,May,Jun): kafka-users (151, 261, 251); kafka-dev (142, 195,
+ - Added two new committers.
+ - Conducted the first Kafka user group meeting with over 50 attendees (archived video link
available here:
This was a very successful event that gave users and contributors an opportunity to meet and
discuss Kafka usage at various companies, ongoing development efforts, feature requests, etc.
+ - Received and reviewed several major patches (including contributions from non-committers).
+ * How has the project developed since the last report.
+ - Intra-cluster replication (KAFKA-50)
+   - Considerable progress has been made on the design and implementation on this much-anticipated
