=== Apache Cassandra 4.0 Overview

Apache Cassandra 4.0 is the most stable release in the project's history and is the beginning of a shift to a 12-month release cycle with release supported for a three-year term. The latest version has undergone intensive testing a sets a new high benchmark for distributed databases, and includes new features that offer:
=== Behind the scenes of an Apache Cassandra Release

* Increased speed and scalability
* Improved consistency
* New configuration settings
* Minimized latency
* Enhanced security and observability
* Better compression
Formalizing how we balance the need to evolve and provide cutting-edge features with long-term stability. The simple rules we use to decide when to merge and why we’ll be supporting three GA releases going forward, but why we’ve decided to support four releases for the next cycle.

=== Apache Cassandra Changelog #9
Jon Meredith joins the PMC, and Apache Cassandra 4.0 garners lots of positive press coverage. Meanwhile, users of Apache Cassandra 3.0.23, 3.0.24, 3.11.9, and 3.11.10 are advised to upgrade due to a potential for data corruption during schema changes. Changelog #9 also includes an update from the Kubernetes SIG on cass-operator and K8ssandra's support for Cassandra 4.0. At the same time, developers are reminded that Cassandra Enhancement Proposals are required for features that change the codebase.
=== Tightening Security for Apache Cassandra: Part 1
The growth in ecommerce has demanded a greater focus on data security. This is the start of a mini-series by Maulin Vasavada on how to customize SSL/TLS configurations to tighten security in Cassandra 4.0+.

=== Cassandra on Kubernetes: A Beginner's Guide
Take a high-level look at the challenges of Kubernetes and the data layer—learn how the community built cass-operator to reduce the complexities. The operator supplies a translation layer between what Kubernetes needs to maintain and the actual implementation by the database. The guide also covers deploying Cassandra on Kubernetes with a single Helm chart and open-source K8ssandra, a distribution of Apache Cassandra that runs on Kubernetes, which offers a suite of tools to ease and automate operational tasks.
=== Inside Cassandra: an interview with Marcel Birkner at Instana
A new series that we've dubbed "Inside Cassandra" where we interview engineers and devs in the community either about their use of Apache Cassandra to power their businesses or how they contribute to the project. The first installation features an interview with Marcel Birkner, Site Reliability Engineer at Instana, and how they use Apache Cassandra to store and process metric data at scale and benefit from Cassandra’s fault tolerance, and have learned the importance of dog-fooding.
