This is your weekly summary of Compose news for those changes and updates which can make your life easier. In this edition, we look at the first milestone in Elasticsearch 2.4.6's retirement and update you on the status of MongoDB. And we also take a browse through the past week's Compose Articles.
Elasticsearch 2.4.6's end of provisioning
As we announced at the start of July, Elasticsearch 2.x is being retired from the Compose platform. The first part of that process has now been completed and you can no longer provision new Elasticsearch 2.x databases on Compose. By the end of October, we hope to have migrated all users to Elasticsearch 5 or later.
If you have an Elasticsearch 2.4.6 database, you should be looking at migrating it to Elasticsearch 5.x as soon as possible as the clock runs out in October.
For various reasons, the preferred status of MongoDB 3.4.10 on Compose.com wasn't noted in Noteworthy. We apologize for the lack of an update on this, but simply, MongoDB 3.4.10 is the current preferred version of MongoDB. If you want to give this version a try before migrating to it, remember that you can use Compose's Backup/Restore to a New Deployment to clone your current MongoDB data with the new database version.
If you missed it, last week's Noteworthy was a follow up on efficient key counting on Redis which showed how to work across Redis keyspaces. And, of course, there was the weekly NewsBits which took a look at the new Kafka 2.0, the latest TypeScript - 3.0, and the 1.0 of the Istio service mesh.
That's it for this week's Noteworthy at Compose. Onwards to next week!
