Subject Re: Heads up: KAFKA-1697 - remove code related to ack>1 on the broker
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 18:40:09 GMT
I very much agree on what Joe is saying, let's use the version field as
and be very strict with not removing nor altering existing behaviour
without bumping the version.
Old API versions could be deprecated (documentation only?) immediately and
removed completely in the next minor version bump (0.8->0.9).

An API to query supported API versions would be a good addition in the long
run but doesn't help current clients
much as such a request to an older broker version will kill the connection
without any error reporting to the client, thus making it rather useless in
the short term.
