The Apache Storm community is pleased to announce that version 0.9.7 has been released and is available from the downloads page.

This is a maintenance release that includes a number of important bug fixes that improve Apache Storm's performance, stability and fault tolerance. We encourage users of previous versions to upgrade to this latest release.

Multi-Lang Bug Fix

This release fixes an issue with Apache Storm's multi-lang feature where a malformed multi-lang message from a ShellSpout would cause the spout to hang indefinitely.
