By Jonathan Ellis -  May 2, 2012 | 0 Comments

Cassandra 1.1 was just released with some useful improvements over 1.0. We’ve been describing these as 1.1 was developed, but it’s useful to list them all in one place:


  • Hadoop can now handle Cassandra wide rows by passing true to the new widerows parameter of setInputColumnFamily. The WordCount example has been updated to cover this.
  • Compression is enabled by default (for newly created tables).
  • We now ship the stress load-testing tool in binary builds
  • SerializingCacheProvidor is now supported on Windows.
