v3.4 (TBD)

Dragonboat v3.4 comes with many improvements. All v3.3.x users are recommended to upgrade.

New features

  • Raft Pre-Vote support.

Improvements

  • Better error handling.
  • Simplified snapshot compaction.
  • Removed dependency on protobuf.
  • Fixed snapshot notification.
  • Fixed unreachable notification.
  • Upgraded to a more recent version of pebble.
  • Non-voting node (used to be called observer node) support has been marked as production ready.

Other changes

  • Raft observer node has been renamed as non-voting node.

v3.3 (2021-01-20)

Dragonboat v3.3 is a major release that comes with new features and improvements. All v3.2.x users are recommended to upgrade.

New features

  • Pebble, which is bidirectional compatible with RocksDB, has been made the default engine for storing Raft Logs. RocksDB and CGO are no longer required.
  • Added the ability to slow down incoming proposals when the Raft Logs engine is highly loaded.
  • Added the option to get notified when proposals and config changes are committed.
  • Added a gossip service to allow NodeHosts to use dynamically assigned IP addresses as RaftAddress.
  • Added the ability to better control memory footprint.
  • Added ARM64/Linux as a new targeted platform.

Note that Pebble provides bidirectional compatibility with RocksDB v6.2.1. Existing Dragonboat applications can upgrade to v3.3 without any conversion unless a newer version of RocksDB was used. RocksDB v6.4.x has been briefly tested and it seems to be compatible with Pebble as well.

Improvements

  • Optimized the read index implementation.
  • Reduced LogDB restart delays.
  • Made LogDB configurations accessible programmatically.
  • Added protobuf workaround to allow Dragonboat and etcd to be used in the same project.
  • Fixed a few data race issues.
  • Fixed a potential Raft election deadlock issue when nodes are highly loaded.
  • Allow incoming proposals to be rate limited when LogDB is busy.
  • Simplified many aspects of the library.

Breaking changes

  • The signature of config.LogDBFactoryFunc has been changed. Your application is not affected unless it uses a custom LogDB implementation.
  • Due to lack of user interests, C++ binding is no longer supported.
  • LevelDB based LogDB is no longer supported.
  • NodeHostConfig's FS and SystemTickerPrecision fields have been moved into NodeHostConfig.Expert.

v3.2 (2020-03-05)

Dragonboat v3.2 comes with new features and improvements. All v3.1.x users are recommended to upgrade.

New features

  • Added snappy compression support for Raft entries and snapshots.
  • Added experimental witness support.
  • Added new API to allow LogDB compaction to be manually triggered.
  • Added event listener support to allow users to be notified for certain Raft events.
  • Added system event listener support to allow users to be notified for certain system events.
  • Added Raft related metrics to exported.
  • Added rate limit support to control the maximum bandwidth used for snapshot streaming.
  • Updated the C++ binding to cover all v3.1 features. Thanks JasonYuchen for working on that.
  • Added a virtual filesystem layer to support more filesystem related tests.
  • Added experimental Windows and FreeBSD support.

Improvements

  • Removed the restriction on max proposal payload size.
  • Re-enabled the range delete support in LogDB.
  • Better handling of concurrent snapshot streams.
  • Extensive testing have been done on a high performance native Go KV store called Pebble.
  • TolerateCorruptedTailRecords is now the default WAL recovery mode in the RocksDB based LogDB.

Breaking changes

There is no breaking change for regular users. However,

  • If you have built customized transport module implementing the raftio.IRaftRPC interface, there is minor change to the config.RaftRPCFactoryFunc type. See github.com/lni/dragoboat/config/config.go for details.
  • The default transport module has been updated, it is no longer compatible with earlier versions of dragonboat.
  • The default LogDB data format is no longer backward compatible with v3.1 or earlier.

Other changes

  • LevelDB support has been marked as depreciated. It will be removed from dragonboat in the next major release.

v3.1 (2019-07-04)

Dragonboat v3.1 is a maintenance release with breaking change. All v3.0.x users are recommended to upgrade. Please make sure to carefully read the CHANGELOG below before upgrading.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed ImportSnapshot.

New features

  • Added NodeHostConfig.RaftEventListener to allow user applications to be notified for certain Raft events.

Improvements

  • Made restarting an existing node faster.
  • Immediately return ErrClusterNotReady when requests are dropped for not having a leader.

Breaking changes

  • When upgrading to v3.1.x from v3.0.x, dragonboat requires all streamed or imported snapshots to have been applied. github.com/lni/dragonboat/tools/upgrade310 is provided to check that. See the godoc in github.com/lni/dragonboat/tools/upgrade310 for more details. For users who use NodeHost.RequestSnapshot to export snapshots for backup purposes, we recommend to re-generate all exported snapshots once upgraded to v3.1.

v3.0 (2019-06-21)

Dragonboat v3.0 is a major release with breaking changes. Please make sure to carefully read the CHANGELOG below before upgrading.

New features

  • Added on disk state machine (statemachine.IOnDiskStateMachine) support. The on disk state machine is close to the concept described in the section 5.2 of Diego Ongaro's Raft thesis.
  • Added new API for requesting a snapshot to be created or exported.
  • Added the ability to use exported snapshot to repair permanently damaged cluster that no longer has majority quorum.
  • Added new API for cleaning up data and release disk spaces after a node is removed from its Raft cluster.
  • Added the ability to limit peak memory usage when disk or network is slow.
  • Added Go module support. Go 1.12 is required.

Improvements

  • Further improved self checking on configurations.
  • Added snapshot binary format version 2 with block base checksum.
  • Synchronous variants have been provided for all asynchronous user request APIs in NodeHost.

Breaking changes

  • The Drummer package has been made invisible from user applications.
  • The statemachine.IStateMachine interface has been upgraded to reflect the fact that not all state machine data is stored in memory (#46).

v2.1 (2019-02-20)

New features

  • Added support to store Raft Logs in LevelDB.

v2.0 (2019-01-04)

Initial open source release.
