Date Mon, 03 Jun 2019 14:23:03 GMT
The Apache Kafka community is pleased to announce the release for Apache
Kafka 2.2.1

This is a bugfix release for Kafka 2.2.0. 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 topics.

** 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.
