Cassaforte 1.3.0-beta2 Is Released


Cassaforte is a Clojure client for Apache Cassandra 1.2+. It is built around CQL 3 and focuses on ease of use. You will likely find that using Cassandra from Clojure has never been so easy.

1.3.0-beta2 is a milestone release that upgrades Hayt which contains a slew of bug fixes.

Changes between Cassaforte 1.3.0-beta1 and 1.3.0-beta2

Hayt Update

Hayt dependency has been updated to 1.4.1, which supports if-not-exists in create-keyspace:

(create-keyspace "main"
           (with {:replication
                    {:class "SimpleStrategy"
                     :replication_factor 1 }}))
