Apache Hadoop 0.23.0 has been released
The Apache Hadoop PMC has voted to release Apache Hadoop 0.23.0. This release is significant since it is the first major release of Hadoop in over a year, and incorporates many new features and improvements over the 0.20 release series. The biggest new features are HDFS federation, and a new MapReduce framework. There is also a new build system (Maven), Kerberos HTTP SPNEGO support, as well as some significant performance improvements which we’ll be covering in future posts. Note, however, that 0.23.0 is not a production release, so please don’t install it on your production cluster.
