Hello! Things are moving fast. Thanks to a great community & fantastic dedicated EMQX open-source team, we are developing features & fixes at a break neck pace.
February was a hotpot of cutting edge protocol support, community engagement, security and more features. Here’s what we have been up to.
We had our first informal live demo session ( via Zoom ). It was a packed house with multiple teams & community members joining.
A community contribution was demonstrated and well received by everyone, which also included insights on specific customer use cases.
The open source team show cased the new environment variable config overriding & the MsQuic proof of concept. The new Env overriding provides great flexibility, just a little taste of the greater configuration enhancements taking place.
The MsQuic PoC speaks to our commitment to lead in the market. Enabling customers to stay cutting edge in competitive industries.
Thank you to our presenters from the EMQX open source team, community contributors and all the attendees, for an informative event with great energy.
We hope to have many more.
From OTP 23 we have set TLS 1.3 as default. Selecting the best security first while still being able to support earlier versions when needed.
General configuration can be overridden using environment variables, useful for testing and non persistent use cases.
The master branch is now the cutting edge, try out the latest features as they are pushed. Releases will be tagged from master and maintenance branches created from releases.
A NIF (Erlang Native Implemented Functions) based QUIC ( MsQuic from Microsoft ) PoC developed & demonstrated. Paving the way to road mapping QUIC support in future. Please follow up on emqx/quic for latest updates.
How is it different from brod?
The team are delivering great sprints from our product managers, bringing the anticipated v4.3 Beta tantalizingly close.
Exhook ( emqx-exhook ) is a plugin in emqx. It’s main objective is forwarding all hook events via grpc to servers implemented in another language, greatly improving the extensibility of emqx. The recent benchmark achieved 20k/s TPS on 8 core CPU, 16 GB RAM.
The message retention function of [EMQ X MQTT Broker](https://emqx.io) is implemented by the `emqx_retainer` plugin, which is enabled by default. By modifying the configuration of the` emqx_retainer` plugin, you can adjust the EMQ X Broker's retention message Location, restrict the number of retained messages and maximum payload length, and adjust the expiration time of retained messages.
In March, the focus of our work was on finalising 4.3 release as well as the design of EMQ X Broker 5.0
