This release is the last minor release before we start turning Tremor into a truly distributed event processing and data distribution engine. We focused on small things that improve usability and ironed out some rough edges here and there.


  • We extended our type system and codecs by the binary type.
  • Elasticsearch offramp now supports Linked Transport.
  • String interpolation done right, now with #{} instead of just {}
  • Release now includes prebuilt binaries, DEB packages and RPMs

New Release Artefacts

To make your life easier installing and Tremor more pleasant, we added new release artefacts. We've now got prebuilt binaries wrapped up in a tar.gz for amd64 linux, DEB, and RPM packages. And, lets not forget our well-known Docker Image.

We are going to explore more channels for release artefacts in the future to get you up and running with Tremor in no time.

In addition to those new release channels, we enabled thin-lto for all builds, which should improve compile-time while providing all the benefits of full link time optimization (LTO). We also link OpenSSL, now statically, to avoid incompatibilities with OpenSSL versions provided by the OS.

The Tremor Team



Tremor is an open source event processing and data distribution engine designed to interpose or intercept data in complex systems primarily to inject quality of service, correct data flows and to enrich or support complex traffic shaping, routing and load-balancing based on contextual, situational or content derived dynamic conditions.

Tremor has a powerful ETL language designed for flexibly pattern matching structured data such as JSON efficiently (SIMD-accelerated), and a declarative flow-based SQL language designed for rich JSON-like data to describe data processing and data flow graphs with declarative QoS constraints.

Tremor has been in large scale global production at Wayfair for 2 years now, and is gaining adoption in other organizations.

In this release, we return to Tremor’s roots and focus on quality of service by adding linked-transports to interpose RPC-like and synchronous-blocking protocols. We add circuit breakers to manage upstream and downstream byzantine events, and we provide mechanisms that offer shades of delivery guarantees or intrinsic transactions that, when combined with suitable upstream or downstream systems, can produce lossless data transfers for certain routes whilst remaining best-effort for routes that do not support lossless delivery or recovery in and of themselves with minimal loss.

Lastly, but most importantly, this is the first release of Tremor as a Linux Foundation/CNCF early-stage sandbox project. We would like to thank everyone at Wayfair in Boston and Berlin, the Linux Foundation and the CNCF who facilitated, helped, nurtured, transitioned DNS entries and worked with the legals to make this transition to fully open governance happen. A huge thanks to Chris and Amye at the Linux Foundation.
