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].

## 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
   [19].



Have a fantastic weekend,
