ScyllaDB release: version 0.16

The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of ScyllaDB version 0.16

ScyllaDB is an open source, Apache-Cassandra-compatible NoSQL database, with superior performance and consistent low latency.
This version is an incremental improvement release on the beta series, focused on stability and bug fixes. Some of the noteworthy updates are:

  • ScyllaDB AMI is now based on CentOS 7. Make sure to log in as centos when connecting to a ScyllaDB AMI.
  • ALTER TABLE feature was merged, but is not officially available yet. We are actively testing it and will announce availability in a future release.
    If you are brave enough to test it, use the scylla option --experimental to enable it.
  • SSL for client to node and node to node encryption was merged, but is not officially available yet. We are actively testing it and will announce availability in a future release.
  • Move to latest release of seastar and scylla-jmx

A full list of contributions and known issues is available on the ScyllaDB wiki

ScyllaDB is on track for a GA release in 2016 Q1. See the status page for complete feature and compatibility information.
