You can read about all the changes in the release notes linked above, but there are a few changes which are worth highlighting:

  • Transient cluster settings were no longer being applied once additional persistent settings were set. This is an important bug fix for an issue that has been present since 6.0.
  • Replica recovery could enter an endless flushing loop.
  • Several snapshot/restore edge cases have been improved.
