Version 1.4 of Red Hat AMQ Streams is available for download and installation.

The features added in this release for AMQ Streams on Red Hat Enterprise Linux include:

  • AMQ Streams now supports Apache Kafka version 2.4.0.

  • Support for ZooKeeper 3.5.7.

    • Kafka version 2.4.0 requires a new version of ZooKeeper. This version of ZooKeeper adds two configuration options: reconfigEnabled to enable or disable dynamic reconfiguration; and standaloneEnabled to enable or disable standalone mode.
  • Dynamic reconfiguration to scale ZooKeeper 3.5.7 up or down.

  • Support for OAuth 2.0 authentication.

  • Red Hat Single Sign-On integration.

  • Support for distributed tracing using Jaeger for the Kafka Bridge component.

Features added in this release for AMQ Streams on OpenShift Container Platform include:

  • AMQ Streams now provides Kubernetes-native management of connectors in a Kafka Connect cluster using a new custom resource named KafkaConnector.

  • Kafka listener certificates: set up server certificates and private keys for both TLS listeners and external listeners with TLS encryption enabled.

  • Controlled level of access to Kafka brokers (user quota): you can set two types of user quotas on the KafkaUser resource, including network usage quotas and CPU utilization quotas.

  • Support for PKCS #12 storage to manage certificates and keys in one place.
