Customers using Elixir Ambience 3.x ~ 4.x/2020 ~ 2022 are advised to migrate/upgrade to Ambience 2023 and above as there will be no further patches/upgrades to the versions of Akka framework libraries from 01 Sep 2023 onwards due to changes in Akka’s commercial licensing terms:
The official Akka announcement can be found here: Akka License FAQ | Lightbend
What is the Akka framework?
