Infinispan 5.0 offers more than 45 new features

9 Aug 2011 Raleigh - Infinispan Version 5.0 of the open source Infinispan Grid computing platform, code-named Pagoa, has been released. Following six months of development and eight release candidates, the latest version contains over 30 bug fixes and more than 45 new functions; these include a new rehash scheme, support for virtual nodes and a recovery mode following transaction failures. Infinispan 5.0 also now supports the Spring, CDI and OSGi programming models.

Infinispan can be used to construct data Grids on the latest multi-processor and multi-core architectures. At the heart of the Java-based application is a JSR-107 compatible cache interface, which can be optionally backed by a peer-to-peer network architecture. According to the project's roadmap, future versions will be able to be used in conjunction with C, PHP or Python via a language-independent server module, rather than just with Java.

Infinispan 5.0 is available to download from the JBoss Community web site; updated documentation for the Grid platform is provided. Infinispan is licensed under the LGPL 2.1.
