We are pleased to announce the third maintenance release of the 2.1.xseries of the Akka toolkit, improving documentation and fixing several issues including the following:

  • Calling Thread Dispatcher deadlock problems
  • Stack overflow while loading messages from persistent mailbox
  • More robust recovery in remoting in case of malformed messages
  • Proper deployment of typed actors 

... and several smaller fixes

The documentation for 2.1.4 is now also available in ePub format. This update is backwards binary compatible, meaning that the JAR files of release 2.1.4 are a drop-in replacement for 2.1.0, 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 but not the other way around. We recommend that all users upgrade at their earliest convenience. Please refer to the full announcement for more details.

Happy hAkking!
