Announcing the release of Apache Incubator Samza 0.7.0

I am very excited to announce that Apache Incubator Samza 0.7.0 has been released. Samza is a distributed stream processing framework. It uses Apache Kafka for messaging, and Apache Hadoop YARN to provide fault tolerance, processor isolation, security, and resource management. The project entered Apache Incubator in 2013 and was originally created at LinkedIn, where it's in production use. The project is currently under active development from a diverse group of committers.

A source download of the 0.7.0 release is available here. The release JARs are also available in Apache's Maven repository. See Samza's download page for details.

In all, 156 JIRAs were resolved in this release. Notable work done includes:

We've also made a lot of community progress during this release:

Even after all this work, there's still a lot to be done. In our next release (0.8.0), we're planning to focus on performance. This work includes:

Now is a great time to get involved. You can start by running through the hello-samza tutorial, signing up for the mailing list, and grabbing some newbie JIRAs.

I'd like to close by thanking everyone who's been involved in the project. It's been a great experience to be involved in this community, and I look forward to its continued growth.
