Really happy to announce the v0.2.0 alpha release of Creek is now publicly available on Maven Central! :boom: This may only be an alpha release, but it’s the first public release and therefore a major milestone for the project.

The core and system-test functionality is getting close. At the moment, the Kafka side only supports records with basic key and value types, like long, String and double. While this is pretty limiting, it’s enough to allow us to throw together some initial tutorials. These tutorials are what we’ll be focusing on next, along with switching the existing GitHub based docs over to this site.

Once a tutorial or two have been knocked out, giving people a taste of what Creek is all about, work will pivot back to those outstanding big ticket items. Items like JSON support and Windowed key support. These will really open Creek up to real world applications.

We’ll post again when those tutorials go live…
