Confluent Platform 5.2 Released

Mau Barra announces Confluent Platform 5.2:

Confluent Platform 5.2 represents a significant milestone in our efforts across three key dimensions:
1. It allows you to use the entire Confluent Platform free forever in single-broker Kafka clusters, so you are freer than ever to start building new event streaming applications right away. We are also bringing librdkafka 1.0 in order to bring our C/C++, Python, Go and .NET clients closer to parity with the Java client.
2. It adds critical enhancements to Confluent Control Center that will help you meet your event streaming SLAs in distributed Apache Kafka environments at greater scale.
3. With our latest version of Confluent Replicator, you can now seamlessly stream events across on-prem and public cloud deployments.

The top item is quite interesting: a free developer license and not just a 30-day trial.
