Hello All!


Here’s the latest summary of the Riak users mailing list, latest client
releases and job openings at Basho.

## Latest Releases


   -

   NodeJS Client 2.1.2 - includes improvements to closed connections
   handling such as with AWS ELB. Release notes [1] and code [2].
   -

   Java Client 2.0.5 - brings a number of fixes including a fix to a DNS
   refresh issue and enhanced testing. Release notes [3] and maven repo [4].


## Recently Answered


   -

   Magnus and Russell help Oleksiy clear up some confusion about the hidden
   $bucket index [5] - but only when using leveldb. Nevertheless, perhaps a
   $bucket query should not be accepted against a bitcask backend [6].
   -

   Robert notes that when joining nodes to clusters they must have the same
   ring sizes [7].
   -

   Agung is interested in working with riak_ensemble [8][9] and has a few
   questions about it. Carlos recommends taking a look at nkbase [10], which
   uses riak_ensemble, and Sargun goes into more detail [11].

   with Riak/LevelDB [17]
