We're excited to announce the 0.2.0 release of Arroyo, our first since we open-sourced the project last month. Arroyo is a state-of-the-art stream processing engine that lets anyone build complex real-time data pipelines with SQL.
With the 0.2.0 release, we are continuing to push forward on features, stability, and productionization. We've added native Kubernetes support and easy deployment via a Helm chart, expanded our SQL support with features like JSON functions and windowless joins, and made many more fixes and improvements detailed below.
We are also thrilled to welcome three new contributors to the project:
- @rtyler made their first contribution in #8
- @akennedy4155 made their first contribution in #49
- @jbeisen made their first contribution in #77
Looking forward to the 0.3.0 release, we will continue to improve our SQL support with the ability to create sources and sinks directly as SQL tables, views, UDFs and external joins. We will also be adding a native Pulsar connector and making continued improvements in performance and reliability.
Native Kubernetes support
As of release 0.2.0, Arroyo can natively target Kubernetes as a scheduler for running pipelines. We now also support easily running the Arroyo control plane on Kubernetes using our new helm chart.
See the docs for all the details.
Arroyo has long had first-class support for Nomad as a scheduler, where we take advantage of the very low-latency and lightweight scheduling support. Now we also support Nomad as an easy deploy target for the control plane as well via a nomad pack.
See the docs for more details.
With this release we are making big improvements in SQL completeness. Notably, we've made our JSON support much more flexible with the introduction of SQL JSON functions including get_json_objects, get_first_json_object, and extract_json_string.
We've also added support for windowless joins.

- Initial JSON functions and raw Kafka Source by @jacksonrnewhouse in #86
