Hello Gang,

For your viewing pleasure this weekend we’ve got a big product bump - Riak
TS 1.4 - with an equally large bump to the Riak Java Client to check out
along with the effervescent mailing list recap. Take those brand new bits
out for a spin.

As always, let us know your thoughts: If you’re working on or speaking
about something Riak related and would like a mention, let me know. I’ll
get your talk, project or blog post in the next Riak Recap. I know a guy.

## Announcements


   Riak TS 1.4. There’s lots of new stuff here to get through. GROUP BY
   [0], ISO8601 support [1] and a global TTL [2] are just some of them. Check
   out the release notes [3] and give it a try [4]. As always, lots of props
   to all the engineers involved in making this happen: support, docs,
   product, time series team, performance and all our users who contributed
   along the way. Congrats!

   Riak Java Client 2.0.7 comes stacked with features, fixes and Riak 1.4
   support. Check out the release notes [5], maven [6], the all in one jar [7]
   and the API docs [8].

## Recently Answered


   Kasper Tidemann writes in [10] with a Go client issue and Alex lets him
   (and the rest of us) know that the Go client only speaks protobuff. Go

   For those upgrading to Riak TS 1.4, Chris Johnson writes in with his
   notes on the process and enhancements to the documentation [11]. Thanks for
   your input Chris!

## Open Discussions


   Ali Rıza KELEŞ is looking to use 3 of his 7 Riak nodes as CS instances
   and how to appropriately configure his riak.conf/advanced.config files to
   accomplish this  [12]. This is a good time to chime in and simply say Riak
   doesn’t work that way. One does not simply dictate where data resides in
   Riak [13]. In other words, you can’t tell Riak to restrain data to a subset
   of nodes. Create a dedicated cluster.

   Kyle Nguyen is working through some certificate based auth issues with
   the Java client [14] and Jonathan Joseph helped with details on how to turn
   on SSL debugging [15].

   Magnus Kessler helps “!” with a some high I/O concerns [16]. “!”, please
   add some more info to your request!

   Hawk Newton is looking for some guidance on how best to detect Hinted
   Handoff programmatically vs parsing the command line output [17].

   Chris Johnson runs into an overload error in Riak TS [18] and continues
   a conversation on how best to deal with it, take a look at the github issue

Have a fantastic weekend,

-Alexander Sicular
