Scylla Release

The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 1.2, the third production-ready Scylla minor release. Scylla is an open source NoSQL database compatible with Apache Cassandra, with superior performance and consistent low latency. From now on, only critical bugs (showstoppers) will be fixed in branch-1.2.x. We will continue to fix bugs and add features on the master branch toward 1.2 and beyond. Followup minor releases (1.3, 1.4 etc) will be time-based releases, closed at the end of each month; Scylla 1.3 is due July 2016.
