Two months after the announcement of the Renaissance benchmark suite, we are pleased to release version 0.10.0 that includes a new benchmark, several improvements and bug fixes.
Most importantly, we added the
scala-doku benchmark which is a
Sudoku solver written in Scala. Other changes include making
finagle-http more parallel, addressing an important bug in
finagle-chirper and removing the native libraries dependencies of
db-shootout. Moreover, the compatibility with different architectures
has been improved and JDK11 is now also supported.
All changes are listed in the GitHub release.
The numerous reports and positive feedback from the community are very encouraging and show a quick adoption of the suite across the industry. It helps companies like Oracle, IBM or SAP track performance and/or fix bugs. For instance, this OpenJ9 bug running Apache Spark has been spotted thanks to the Renaissance suite.
We address special thanks to:
