<dl> <dt> Why Kafka 0.7? </dt> <dd> I needed to interact with a system running Kafka 0.7. </dd> <dt> Will 0.8 or newer be supported? </dt> <dd> There are currently no plans to do so. Unless I end up needing to also interact with a Kafka 0.8 system, or receive a pull request, the answer is no. </dd> </dl>
