I plan to write periodic updates about the AsyncAPI Spec and parsers every ~2 weeks (I hope you are ok with it).

Note This is not an official AsyncAPI update but a personal summary I volunteer to do.

What do I mean by AsyncAPI Spec ecosystem? As most of the work around the AsyncAPI Spec is not only related with https://github.com/asyncapi/spec, each update will include the most significant recent activity from the following repositories, which I consider them to be part of the same ecosystem:

This time, as an exception (it is the first one I do), I wanted to include updates from the whole month (30 Nov - 31 Dec 2021).

Feel free to ask me to include any other repository if you consider it makes sense. Also, in case you want to help me with these updates :)


Spec v2.3.0 work is progressing!

Spec v3.0.0 work is slowly progressing!

As always, You can find some of the most critical progress on the AsyncAPI spec v3.0.0 release journal

You can find a list (grooming pending) of candidates to be included in v3.0.0 at https://github.com/asyncapi/spec/milestone/18.

Spec also had some more activity

spec-json-schemas had some important activity

  • To ease maintainability of AsyncAPI JSON Schemas, Jonas Lagoni has been doing a rework on them, mainly splitting all definitions into different files they can be bundled later to provide a unique file to use. The PR is available here, and it has been going through several iterations. Some people have already reviewed it. As always, eyes are welcome and needed, so I encourage you to go and take a look!
  • On the other hand, Lukasz Gornicki opened the issue remove js and go package and probably move JSON schemas should stay alone in the repo. The TL;DR is that it has been proposed to create separate repositories for each different language implementation (Node and Go at this time) of that package instead of using monorepo. All those repositories will have an up-to-date copy of the JSON Schema definitions (via GH Actions). Work would start after v2.3.0 release. A discussion about it can be found on the issue.

parser-js v1.13.1 is out + some important issues and updates!

avro-schema-parser got a PR to fix a bug

fix: avro parser now handles record reuse in definitions by Jonathan is waiting for your review!
