nsq v0.2.25 Release Notes

Release Date: 2014-02-05 // almost 8 years ago
  • โฌ†๏ธ Upgrading from 0.2.24: No backwards incompatible changes.

    ๐Ÿš€ This release adds several commonly requested features.

    ๐Ÿ”ง First, thanks to @elubow you can now configure your clients to sample ๐Ÿ‘€ the stream they're subscribed to. To read more about the details of the implementation see #286 and the original discussion in #223. Eric also contributed an improvement to nsq_tail to add the ability to tail the last N messages and exit.

    ๐Ÿ‘ We added config file support (TOML) for ๐Ÿš€ nsqd, nsqlookupd, and nsqadmin - providing even more deployment flexibility. Example configs ๐Ÿ’ป are in the contrib directory. Command line arguments override the equivalent option in the config file.

    We added the ability to pause a topic (it is already possible to pause individual channels). This functionality stops all message flow from topic to channel for all channels of a topic, queueing at the topic level. This enables all kinds of interesting possibilities like atomic channel renames and trivial infrastructure wide operations.

    ๐Ÿฑ Finally, we now compile the static assets used by nsqadmin into the binary, simplifying ๐Ÿš€ deployment. This means that --template-dir is now deprecated and will be removed in a future ๐Ÿš€ release and you can remove the templates you previously deployed and maintained.
