FIXEdge v.6.10.0 release: Kafka transport adapter is added

B2BITS, EPAM Systems company is pleased to announce the release of version 6.10.0 FIXEdge.

The main feature of this release is a newly added Kafka transport adapter. It allows FIXEdge to route messages to/from the Kafka open-source, distributed event streaming platform. See details.

Starting with this release, we are discontinuing support of RHEL 6 since it came to the end of life. Currently supported platforms include RHEL 7 and Windows x64.

  • FIXEdge has been extended with a new transport adapter for Kafka.
  • Rest initiator/acceptor TAs now fully support FIX 5.0+protocols.
