What's New in Apache Kafka

Learn about the new features of Kafka in Cloudera Runtime 7.1.4.

The kafka-clients library is no longer dependant on Apache Shiro and libpam4j

The LdapPlainServerCallbackHandler and PamPlainServerCallbackHandler custom Cloudera plugins introduced undesired dependencies for users of the kafka-client library. These plugins are now moved to a new module in Kafka that is only used on the broker side. As a result, the kafka-clients library is no longer dependent on Apache Shiro and libpam4j.
