This is now in General Availability. See it here and request a trial today!

Today we release our first beta CSD for Confluent Platform 3.0.0. It is robust enough to use in production; but we want to add at least some small touches before the final release which we expect to be fully compatible with the beta —drop-in replacement and upgrade.

For the eager ones, you can find it at our archive. The installation procedure remains the same, yet if you use the old one, we suggest to remove and clean the previous installation.

Changelog from 2.0.1

These are the important changes:

  • Upgrade to Confluent Platform 3.0.0.
  • More robust initialization for kerberized environments. Just enable an internal (to the cluster) plaintext port for the brokers and the rest of the infrastructure will use it automatically.
  • Ability to use your own connectors. Add them manually to the same path to all Connect hosts and configure the classpath option in CM.
  • Datamountainer’s Stream Reactor technology is now available as a parcel. Add our repository https://archive.landoop.com/cdh5/stream-reactor/latest/ to Cloudera Manager’s Parcel Configuration dialog, download - activate the parcel and finally restart Connect Distributed to get access to a terrific connector collection.
  • A user-defined id is appended to log filenames instead of a random one, making the logs path predictable and consistent across cluster nodes.

Missing Features

We decided against supporting some features for the time being:

  • Control Center is ommited.
  • SSL support for Kafka REST Proxy and Schema Registry is ommited.
