Release Notes

EventStoreDB 3.8.0 Released

Pieter Germishuys  |  12 July 2016

Event Store 3.8.0 is now released! This release contains a number of improvements and bug fixes. The release was focussed on an issue related to Projections whereby once a stream has been written to from one projection and the projection deleted, another projection could not write to that same stream.

The first step to resolving the issue was to ensure that the object that tracks and emits events to streams via the linkTo and emit projection functions handles streams that have been deleted a bit better.

To explain a little more, when a projection emits an event via the above mentioned functions, it will write the event and metadata for the event which contains details about the projection that produced the event.

When a projection attempts to write an event via the previously mentioned functions it will read the last event in the stream that it wants to write events to and use the metadata to determine if the current projection is the one that last wrote an event to the stream and if not, it will fail with an error message explaining that multiple projections are emitting to the same stream.

The second part of fixing this issue was giving the user the ability to track and delete emitted streams for a projection. The HTTP API for projections creation and deletion have been updated with trackEmittedStreams and deleteEmittedStreams respectively.

There is also an accompanying update to the .NET Client API and the Embedded Client. These are now in the [EventStore NuGet gallery](
