Quarkus is a Kubernetes Native Java framework tailored for GraalVM and HotSpot, crafted from best-of-breed Java libraries and standards. The goal of Quarkus is to make Java a leading platform in Kubernetes and serverless environments while offering developers a unified reactive and imperative programming model to optimally address a wider range of distributed application architectures.
Today, Red Hat and the Quarkus community announced Quarkus 1.0
New in 1.0
The release of Quarkus 1.0 builds on the work of the previous releases and includes:
- A reactive core based on Vert.x to make reactive programming a first class feature of Quarkus
- A new non-blocking security layer, which enables reactive authentications and authorization, and also enables reactive security operations to integrate with Vert.x
- Improved Spring API compatibility, including Spring Web and Spring Data JPA, as well as Spring DI
- Support for Java 8, 11 and 13 when using Quarkus on the JVM. Java 11 native compilation support is also planned for the near future.
