JBossCache3.2.3CR1 has just been released. It contains a single performance improvement that significantly increases the throughput when JDBC cache loader is used under heavy load. Thanks to Nikolay Zamosenchuk for investigating and fixing this!

Another major JBoss Cache release: say hello to Malagueta!
While this is primarily a bug fix release, I have decided to bump up the minor version number (3.1.x -> 3.2.x) due to library compatibility. JBoss Cache 3.1.x could only support JGroups up to and equalling 2.6.x. Due to dependence on certain JGroups classes, 3.1.x will not work with newer JGroups releases (such as JGroups 2.8.x).
JBoss Cache 3.2.0 adds the ability to work with both JGroups 2.6.x as well as 2.8.x and beyond, and as such is more future-proof. Visit JIRA for a full changelog of issues addressed in this release. Downloads and documentation are in the usual places.

I've just released JBoss Cache 3.1.0.GA, codenamed Cascabel. The big feature in this release is non-blocking state transfer, which allows for state to be transferred to new joiners in a cluster without freezing the cluster. I blogged about non-blocking state transfer some months ago, here.
Other changes include some critical bug fixes such as JBCACHE-1490, JBCACHE-1496, JBCACHE-1507 and JBCACHE-1508. New features - in addition to non-blocking state transfer - include a new lock-per-Fqn scheme for MVCC, which provides greater concurrency than the striped lock mechanism at the cost of memory usage and a slight performance hit.
The complete list of JIRAs addressed is here.
Downloads, documentation, etc are all in the usual place.

I'd like to announce Infinispan, the spiritual successor to JBoss Cache. Read all about it on the Infinispan blog. And for those of you wondering about the future of JBoss Cache, this is addressed in the Infinispan FAQs.
Also note that Infinispan 4.0.0.ALPHA2 is now available for download. Please give it a go, feedback much appreciated.
