Akka 2.3.6 Maintenance Release

Dear hAkkers,

We—the Akka committers—are pleased to be able to announce the availability of Akka 2.3.6. This is the sixth maintenance release of the 2.3 branch. This release contains the following improvements:

  • A fix for a wrong snapshot file being offered to a recovering persistent actor was contributed by Brendan Lawlor.
  • A fix for a PersistentView which was not working with context.become.
  • An addition to the ever-growing akka-bench-jmh micro-benchmarks. This time a benchmark for AtLeastOneDelivery trait was contributed by kerr.

The complete list of closed tickets can be found in the 2.3.6 github issues milestone.

Akka 2.3.6 is released for Scala 2.10.4 and 2.11.2. This release is backwards binary compatible with version 2.3.5 which means that the new JARs are a drop-in replacement for the old one (but not the other way around) as long as your build does not enable the inliner (Scala-only restriction). Always make sure to use at least the latest version required by any of your project’s dependencies.

Happy hAkking!
