The major new capability of Ehcache 2.5 is enhanced cache resource management, specifically the ability to set the maximum size in bytes of a Cache or CacheManager. This offers the following additional benefits to Ehcache users:
Ehcache 2.4.3 adds support for Terracotta 3.5.2 and includes some minor bug fixes. Terracotta 3.5.2 contains significant bug fixes.
Software AG today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Terracotta, the company behind Ehcache.
Ehcache 2.4.2 adds support for Terracotta 3.5.1 and includes some minor bug fixes. Terracotta 3.5.1 resolves incompatibilities with Hibernate and with Liferay as well as other minor issues.
Ehcache 2.4.1 is now available for general availability. It contains a number of bug fixes, performance enhancements and new capabilities including support for Terracotta 3.5.0.
Ehcache Search is an addition to the core Ehcache API that lets you query, search and analyze billions of cache entries in memory, with results to complex searches returned in less than a second. By querying the cache directly, you can avoid the time-consuming and expensive process of querying the database, then mapping query results to cache lookups.
The results of a comprehensive survey of Ehcache users are now available in a paper entitled "Caching Use Cases in the Enterprise: What You Can Learn from Hundreds of Ehcache Users Across the Globe."
Fremantle Beta 2 is now available. New in Beta 2:
Fremantle is the code name for the next major release of Ehcache and Enterprise Ehcache.
Notable new features include:
BigMemory is an add-on to Enterprise Ehcache that permits caches to use an additional type of memory store outside the object heap. This off-heap store, which is not subject to Java GC, is 100 times faster than the DiskStore and allows very large caches to be created in memory (we have tested this up to 350GB).

Ehcache 2.2 and Enterprise Ehcache 2.2 have been released. The new capabilities in this latest version of Ehcache are focused on improving the scalability, visibility, and management of the Terracotta-backed distributed cache for Ehcache. Enterprise Ehcache †2.2 enables customers to store over a terabyte of data and hundreds of millions of entries in a single cache. Designed to be a snap-in capability, this new terabyte-scale storage option can be turned on with a simple change to the ehcache configuration file.
