Scarlet Beta2

Sergio did it again. We have just announced the second beta for Scarlet, our Open Source clustering solution for Jira based on Terracotta DSO. This is a major step forward in Scarlet development, as it brings development in sync with the latest version from Atlassian (3.11, that is) and adds support for distributed events (mail notifications, scheduled jobs, backups and the like). Download it while it’s hot, full changelog follows:

  • Jira 3.11 compatibility: previous versions aren’t supported anymore;
  • Jira services clustering: Jira services now work in cluster and run once
    per cluster by default;
  • Jira distributed services: just implement the new
    com.atlassian.jira.service.JiraDistributedService interface for having services
    run on every node in the cluster;
  • Scarlet doesn’t need a dummy index directory for Lucene indexes anymore.

Congrats Sergio, keep up the great work! If you want to know more about Scarlet, I will be attending the upcoming Atlassian User Group in London, which is going to be great fun. Hope to see you there!
