Apache Cassandra 4.1: Rock Solid, Cloud-Native, Strongly Consistent and Highly Scalable


This resource is based on an article originally published here.

Today, we are excited to announce General Availability (GA) of Apache Cassandra 4.1, the project’s major release for 2022 with lots of new features. This release paves the way to a more cloud-native future for the project by externalizing important key functions, extending Apache Cassandra, and enabling an expanded ecosystem without compromising the stable core code.

Cassandra 4.1 also marks the delivery of our commitment to a yearly release.

The release of 4.0 last year laid the foundations for growth. It established an important baseline for any future version of Cassandra while providing the needed infrastructure to ensure future releases maintain high quality and correctness. The 4.0 release was also the most stable GA for the project, and arguably any distributed open source database system, and opened the floodgates to a host of new community-developed features that are either included in 4.1 or in development.
