Dear hAkkers,

We—the Akka committers—are pleased to be able to announce the availability of Akka 2.1.0-RC3 (RELEASE CANDIDATE 3).

This is what we want Akka 2.1 to be, so take it for a spin and give feedback before 2.1.0 goes final!


IMPORTANT NOTICE

The artifacts comprising this release candidate have been published to https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/releases/ and also to Maven Central. In addition, we adopted the SBT standard of encoding the Scala version in the artifact name, i.e. the core actor package’s artifactId is “akka-actor_2.1.0-RC3”.


Summary of Changes since Akka 2.1.0-RC2

For the new features in 2.1, see the announcement for the previous release candidate:

resulting in 98 files changed, 785 insertions(+), 495 deletions(–). The most notable changes are:

 – fix a performance regression when subscribing to the EventStream
