Apache Mesos 0.27.0 Released

The latest Mesos release, 0.27.0, is now available for download. This release includes the following features and improvements:

  • [MESOS-1791]: Support for resource quota that provides non-revocable resource guarantees without tying reservations to particular Mesos agents. Please refer to the quota documentation for more information.

  • [MESOS-191]: Multiple disk support to allow for disk IO intensive applications to achieve reliable, high performance.

  • [MESOS-4085]: Flexible roles with the introduction of implicit roles. It deprecates the whitelist functionality that was implemented by specifying --roles during master startup to provide a static list of roles.

  • [MESOS-2353]: Performance improvement of the state endpoint for large clusters.

Furthermore, 167+ bugfixes and improvements made it into this release. For full release notes with all features and bug fixes, please refer to the CHANGELOG.


Rolling upgrades from a Mesos 0.26.0 cluster to Mesos 0.27.0 are straightforward. There are just some minor, backwards compatible deprecations. Please refer to the upgrade guide for detailed information on upgrading to Mesos 0.27.0.
