Kafka 0.8 makes backwards-incompatible changes to the protocol.
I'm planning to start tackling the changes necessary to support 0.8. This includes supporting the metadata api and making a "smart" producer that has behavior equivalent to the scala producer.
Has anyone started down this path yet? I don't want to duplicate work.
My plan is to have the gem no longer support 0.7's protocol and bump the gems major? version so that the 0.x series can continue to be released with 0.7 support as long as people are still running the 0.7 series of the server. Does this seem reasonable?
not aware of anyone working on this
Any update on 0.8 support?
@EricSites would love to get a pull request
bumping major version makes sense.
I've been working on a new driver which only supports 0.8: https://github.com/bpot/poseidon
Any more progress on 0.8 support?
It would be great to update the readme to make clear that this lib only supports Kafka 0.7 or lower and to link to poseidon for 0.8 and up.
You got it! Created #28.
Merged from the bus! Thanks
