Subject Re: 0.10.2.0 release planning
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2017 05:11:29 GMT
Just to clarify this a bit, the additions made so far add the server-side
handling of the new protocols. But it does not include any user-facing API
changes to enable use of these features. Because of this, it's not
particularly useful to users and not really worth mentioning. It'd mostly
be useful to non-Java client developers that want to add support for this
functionality to their libraries. We can try to advertise it to them a bit,
but the ones that actively maintain and regularly add improvements like
this are generally already watching the KIPs and at least monitor kafka-dev.

(Note that there's also a longstanding WIP patch for list/alter ACLs
https://github.com/apache/kafka/pull/1005. Grant's been inactive for a bit,
but if he comes back to that patch, it'd be possible to squeeze it into
0.10.2.0)
