Sentinel v1.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-08-21 // over 3 years ago
  • ๐Ÿš€ This nouveau release ships with countless features and improvements, specifically for circuit breaking. We've made progress on refactoring and improving circuit breaking feature, including arbitrary statistic duration support, half-open recovery, enhanced slow request ratio strategy, state change observer and more. We've also brought various versatile integrations including Java EE (JAX-RS and CDI), Quarkus and HTTP client (Apache HttpClient and OkHttp), which could cover more developers.

Previous changes from v1.7.2

  • ๐Ÿ— In this version, we've brought breaking changes about the slot SPI mechanism. The slot chain builder SPI has been deprecated (legacy classes were reserved for compatibility). Now Sentinel will take ProcessorSlot itself as SPI. Note that the slot might be stateful, so Sentinel will still build different new slot chains for each resource.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ Furthermore, a new Logger SPI mechanism is introduced for flexible logging extension. The default RecordLog implementation is still based on java.util.logging, and developers could introduce dependencies of logging integration module to adapt to existing logging libraries (e.g. slf4j). See here for more details.
