Stateful Functions 2.2.2 Release Announcement

02 Jan 2021 Tzu-Li (Gordon) Tai (@tzulitai)

The Apache Flink community released the second bugfix release of the Stateful Functions (StateFun) 2.2 series, version 2.2.2.

The most important change of this bugfix release is upgrading Apache Flink to version 1.11.3. In addition to many stability fixes to the Flink runtime itself, this also allows StateFun applications to safely use savepoints to upgrade from older versions earlier than StateFun 2.2.1. Previously, restoring from savepoints could have failed under certain conditions.

We strongly recommend all users to upgrade to 2.2.2.


You can find the binaries on the updated Downloads page.

This release includes 5 fixes and minor improvements since StateFun 2.2.1. Below is a detailed list of all fixes and improvements:
