Key improvements include:
  • Virtual nodes, which improve the granularity of capacity increases and dramatically improve repair and rebuild times in larger clusters. See also this post on upgrading an existing cluster to vnodes.

  • Last but not least, many performance improvements to memory usage, column indexes, compaction, streaming, startup time, and more.
