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].

## Open Discussions

Fred and Magnus are working with Oleksiy to determine the root cause of inconsistent Solr search results [12].
Bartek is looking for assistance on how to feed a mapreduce job with the results of a full text search [13]
Kinson is looking for guidance on implementing Basho Bench [14]
There is an open question regarding whether it’s possible to rebalance Riak KV without adding/removing nodes or making any hardware changes [15]
Luke thinks that Gerhard’s proposed architecture will ensure replicas are distributed to every node, but invites someone with more knowledge of the hashing method to chime in [16]
Robert is looking for guidance on choosing EC2 instance types for use with Riak/LevelDB [17]
Vitaly is helping troubleshoot timeouts in a deployment of Riak KV running on a cluster with 512 partitions [18]
There’s an open question about debugging a post commit hook for a bucket type in Riak 2.1.3 [19]
Christopher explained that when configuring multiple Riak clients in a cluster, you need to have each client use a different name. Chathuri has some follow-up questions about the configuration [20]
Vitaly and Chris are helping troubleshoot testing in a single node implementation of Riak KV [21]
