Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Kafka 2.1.1
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2019 23:37:39 GMT
The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache Kafka 2.1.1.

This is a bugfix release for Kafka 2.1.0.  All of the changes in this release can be found
in the release notes:

You can download the source and binary release from:


Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with four core APIs:

** The Producer API allows an application to publish a stream records to one or more Kafka

** The Consumer API allows an application to subscribe to one or more topics and process the
stream of records produced to them.

** The Streams API allows an application to act as a stream processor, consuming an input
stream from one or more topics and producing an output stream to one or more output topics,
effectively transforming the input streams to output streams.

** The Connector API allows building and running reusable producers or consumers that connect
Kafka topics to existing applications or data systems. For example, a connector to a relational
database might capture every change to a table.

With these APIs, Kafka can be used for two broad classes of application:

** Building real-time streaming data pipelines that reliably get data between systems or applications.

** Building real-time streaming applications that transform or react to the streams of data.

Apache Kafka is in use at large and small companies worldwide, including Capital One, Goldman
Sachs, ING, LinkedIn, Netflix, Pinterest, Rabobank, Target, The New York Times, Uber, Yelp,
and Zalando, among others.
