Hadoop version mystery

leave a comment »

Finally some insight on various release of Hadoop. It had become so complicated that developers had no choice but to use “hadoop distributions” from vendors like cloudera etc. ¬†Hopefully this will improve in 2012.


I have been trying to get this information from JIRA, SVN logs, release notes etc. Some of it is though available on the news page for Hadoop project.

But still 0.23 is an alpha release.  Loads of features have been added on trunk and i am not sure if anyone is using trunk based release yet.
