We are delighted to see that the Apache Flink™ community has announced the availability of Apache Flink™ 0.10. The 0.10 release is one of the largest Flink releases ever, with about 80 individuals resolving more than 400 JIRA issues.
While these numbers are impressive on their own, in Flink 0.10, the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. The combination of new features advances Flink to be a data stream processor that truly stands out in the open source space and that significantly eases the effort to bring streaming jobs into production. While the official release announcement provides an extensive list of new features, this blog post focuses on those features that jointly improve the experience of developing and operating stream processing applications.
