Bad Joke

Since a few releases the Akka documentation has this to say about persistent FSMs:

Persistent FSM is no longer actively developed.  Don't use it for new applications; it will be replaced by Typed Persistence.

Unfortunate since we use Persistent FSM quite a lot, but such is life, technologies come and go, and I generally appreciate adding more type safety to things, in particular Akka which has so far been an untyped mess.

Clicking on the link reveals that Typed Persistence doesn’t quite make the cut:

Akka Typed Persistence may change and is not recommended to use in production just yet.

That’s a bad joke, isn’t it?

Though I fully appreciate the irony of the entirely contradicting advises on both pages. New applications aren’t production-ready anyway, eh?
