The HiveMQ team is pleased to announce the availability of HiveMQ 4.8.9.
This maintenance release for the 4.8 series includes the following improvements:
HiveMQ Enterprise MQTT Broker
- Improved performance for use cases that have a large number of subscribers for the same shared subscription group.
- Improved sustained message rates for clusters with a large number of nodes and CPU cores.
- Increased message throughput rates and payload cleanup performance in deployments with a large number of CPU cores.
- Improved handling in the cleanup service to fix an issue that could cause a periodic cleanup task to get stuck.
- Optimized caching to eliminate unnecessary Java heap memory consumption.
- Fixed an issue that could result in outdated data not being fully removed when a node joins a cluster.
- Fixed an issue that prevented the correct display of persistence executor metrics for retained message tasks and subscription tasks.
- Improved HiveMQ event log feedback for failed authentication to include custom reason strings from extensions.
- Fixed an issue that could cause the incorrect display of menu items in the HiveMQ Control Center main navigation after a license change.
HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Kafka
- Added tracing support in the HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Kafka for
MqttToKafkaTransformercustomizations that create multiple Kafka records from a single MQTT message.
- Fixed an issue where the HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Kafka ignored the keystore private key password value in the TLS configuration to a Confluent Schema Registry. The extension now correctly uses the configured keystore private key password when establishing a connection to a Confluent Schema Registry with TLS (NOTE: Kafka extension users who currently use TLS to connect to a Confluent Schema Registry need to verify that their keystore private key password is correctly configured).
- Fixed an issue that caused a slight offset in the expiry of HiveMQ Swarm licenses.
- Improved user feedback when timer commands are incorrectly configured in a HiveMQ Swarm scenario.
- Improved log output when HiveMQ Swarm starts with an invalid configuration.
- Fixed an issue that caused credential information contained in configuration properties to be ignored in broker test commands.
- Adjusted file handling in the MQTT CLI to ensure platform independence.
Have a great day, The HiveMQ Team
