The default is 128 because the maximum write size is bounded by the number of pipelined requests per connection (for version 1 and 2 of the native protocol).
  • Added backpressure mechanism that can be configured for by the number of outstanding bytes and the number of requests on a connection. These can be configured using cass_cluster_set_write_bytes_high_water_mark(), cass_cluster_set_write_bytes_low_water_mark(), cass_cluster_set_pending_requests_high_water_mark(), and cass_cluster_set_pending_requests_low_water_mark().

  • Added callbacks to futures, cass_future_set_callback()
  • Added plaintext authentication support, cass_cluster_set_credentials()
  • Added map iterator, cass_iterator_from_map(), key and value pairs can be retrieved using cass_iterator_get_map_key() and cass_iterator_get_map_value()
  • Values can be bound by name (statements created from prepared statements only)
  • Values can be retrieved by name from result sets

Other

  • Reduced overhead of prepared statements
