Hi.

I'm very happy to announce the release of Akka 0.10. It is by far our
best and most comprehensive release so far.
It is all thanks to a fantastic team [http://doc.akkasource.org/team]
and user community. Thank you all for your participation.

The full release notes can be seen here:
[http://doc.akkasource.org/release-notes].
All 141 ticket for this release here:
[https://www.assembla.com/spaces/akka/milestones/219583-0-10].

Download it here: [http://github.com/jboner/akka/downloads].
Updated Maven repository here:
[http://www.scalablesolutions.se/akka/repository/].
Benchmark (done on box with 8 real cores): [http://bit.ly/akka-benchmark]
Much improved docs: [http://doc.akkasource.org] (now has separated
Scala and Java API sections, see sidebar)

Here are some the highlights:

* Serialization of Actors:
- Deep serialization (including mailbox) so Actors can be moved
around in cluster
- ActorRef serialization so that references can be sent around that
remembers and uses its original Actor instance (on its original node)
* Much improved Java API. Now (almost) as rich as the Scala API. New
Actors: UntypedActor and TypedActor
* Much improved documentation (separated Java/Scala API and much more)
* Much improved configuration (richer and better documented)
* RemoteClient and RemoteServer event subscription API
* Implicit automatic sender reference management for Remote Actors
* Much improved STM; richer API and configuration, tighter integration
with Multiverse
* New more efficient and rich network protocol
* Improved performance and scalability, lower latency and memory footprint
* New Dispatcher based on HawtDispatch (with the best overall
scalability in benchmarks)
* Much improved Camel module (both for Scala and Java API)
* Much improved AMQP module (including RPC API)
* OSGi support
* FSM support
* Logging switched to slf4j and LogBack
* Many many bugs fixed

Next release will be 1.0 with some RCs on the way, targeted for late fall.

Enjoy.

Congrats on the release! I think the highlight of this release has been to make Akka equally attractive to Java. Great stuff!

I'm having a little trouble with my deployment because the akka-core
jar here:

http://www.scalablesolutions.se/akka/repository/se/scalablesolutions/akka/akka-core_2.8.0/0.10/

is different from the one in the akka-0.10 zip here:

http://github.com/jboner/akka/downloads

and I'm getting the AbstractMethodException in Actor.init when I
compile with the one from the repository and try to run it on my
production server with the one from the zip.

You mean that the one in zip works but not in repo ?
I can upload the zip one tomorrow.

I *think* they both work but they are incompatible.

From the zip: 1 547 926 bytes

In the repository: 1 444 152 bytes
