Release 88: Message Header Production and Protobuf Improvements

Tuesday, December 21st 2021 by Factor House

Kpow v88 features support for producing with message headers, Protobuf referenced schemas, a new topic partition increase function, and much more.

Message Header Production

Kpow now provides the ability to quickly and easily produce messages with headers, and reproduce existing messages with edited or updated headers.

This quick video guide demonstrates the Message Header Production.

Protobuf Referenced Schema

If your Protobuf schema includes referenced schema, Kpow will now resolve those referenced schema correctly on both Data Inspect and Data Produce.

Increase Topic Partitions

In the topic action menu you will find a new function to increase the number of partitions in a topic - use with caution!
