Title: Apache Cassandra 4.0 Preview

With Cassandra 4.0 recently entering a "Feature Freeze" now is a good time to preview what features and improvements are coming in the next major release of Cassandra.

This talk will give a peek at upcoming features, including:

  • Audit and Query Logging
  • New CQL capabilities
  • System Views (Virtual Tables)
  • Transient Replication
  • JDK 11 support and a discussion around new Garbage Collectors (ZGC, Shenandoah)

Finally, we will also overview architectural improvements and changes that users should be aware of. This will include but is not limited to: tooling, repairs, streaming, materialized views, and upgrades.
