Aerospike Server version was released on December 12, 2019.

This major release contains New Features, Improvements and a Bug Fix.

  • XDR, using ACL, in server versions between and cannot ship to this version. The simplest workaround is to avoid using those versions.
  • When upgrading the Aerospike Server refer to the Special Upgrades documentation.

Known Issues

  • Enterprise & Community
    • Records containing certain Complex Data Type (CDT) issues, for example improperly sorted ordered lists, created with Aerospike Server versions prior to 4.6 could be incompatible with server versions 4.6 or later due to stricter CDT validation. This could also block XDR shipping. A tool to identify and/or fix such records will be made available.
