Announcing Akka 2.1.1

We are pleased to announce the first maintenance release of the 2.1.x series of the Akka toolkit, fixing several issues including the following:

  • A possible thread leak at system shutdown
  • A bug in the scheduler which would delay tasks too long if scheduled a multiple of the wheel duration (defaults to 51.2 seconds) into the future
  • Wrong error handling when sending non-serializable or too large remote messages, leading to silent loss and extraneous reconnect

This update is backwards binary compatible, meaning that the JAR files of release 2.1.1 are a drop-in replacement for 2.1.0—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!
