As the adoption of Spark Streaming in the industry is increasing, so is the community’s demand for more features. Since the beginning of this year, we have made significant improvements in performance, usability, and semantic guarantees. In particular, some of these features are:
- New Kafka integration for exactly-once guarantees
- Improved Kinesis integration for stronger guarantees
- Addition of more sources to the Python API
Significantly improved UI for greater monitoring and debuggability.
In this talk, I am going to discuss these improvements as well as the plethora of features we plan to add in the near future.
