ANNOUNCEMENT: Hyperledger Fabric v1.4.2 is now available!

David Enyeart
 

The Hyperledger Fabric maintainers are pleased to announce the availability of Fabric v1.4.2!

v1.4.2 delivers the next set of patches and fixes on the Fabric 1.4 long-term support (LTS) release.

v1.4.2 also delivers Kafka to Raft migration capability for the ordering service. The Raft-based ordering service is simpler to operate since it requires no dependencies external to the orderer nodes. It also enables the ordering service to be provided by different organizations across different data centers. For these reasons we expect Raft to become the preferred ordering service choice for production Fabric networks.

Please see the release notes for additional improvements and suggestions:
https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric/releases/tag/v1.4.2

Download instructions:

I'm a little late to the game with this, but congratulations, this is great to see!  Particularly multi-dc ordering services in Raft.

By the way, I also saw this today and thought folks here would get a thrill:
