+Apache Accumulo 1.6.4 is a maintenance release on the 1.6 version branch.
+This release contains changes from 21 issues, comprised of bug-fixes,
+performance improvements and better test cases. See [JIRA][JIRA_164] for a
+complete list.
+Users of any previous 1.6.x release are strongly encouraged to update as soon as
+possible to benefit from the improvements with very little concern in change
+of underlying functionality. Users of 1.4 or 1.5 that are seeking to upgrade
+to 1.6 should consider 1.6.4 as a starting point.
+## Silent data-loss via bulk imported files
+A user recently reported that a simple bulk-import application would occasionally
+lose some records. Through investigation, it was found that when bulk imports into
+a table failed the initial assignment, the logic that automatically retries the
+imports was incorrectly choosing the tablets to import the files into. [ACCUMULO-3967][ACCUMULO-3967]
+contains more information on the cause and identification of the bug. The data-loss
+condition would only affect entire files. If records from a file exist in Accumulo,
+it is still guaranteed that all records within that imported file were successful.
+As such, users who have bulk import applications using previous versions of Accumulo
+should verify that all of their data was correctly ingested into Accumulo and
+immediately update to Accumulo 1.6.4.
+## Other bug fixes
+ * [ACCUMULO-3979][ACCUMULO-3979] Fixed an issue where the BulkImporter failed
+   with an error message "QUERY_METADATA already started".
+ * [ACCUMULO-3965][ACCUMULO-3965] The `listscans` shell command did not contain
+   the `scanId` attribute for currently running scans.
+ * [ACCUMULO-3946][ACCUMULO-3946] Verified that all user-facing operations contained
+   appropriate audit messages.
+ * [ACCUMULO-3977][ACCUMULO-3977] Isolated scans with Iterators in use incorrectly
+   fail around invocation of `deepCopy`.
+ * [ACCUMULO-3905][ACCUMULO-3905] RowDeletingIterator functions incorrectly when
+   columns are provided by the client. This restores intended functionality without
+	 the need for a [workaround][3905-workaround].
+ * [ACCUMULO-3959][ACCUMULO-3959] [ACCUMULO-3934][ACCUMULO-3934] Multiple documentation
+   improvements to `BatchScanner`.
+## Testing
+Each unit and functional test only runs on a single node, while the RandomWalk
+and Continuous Ingest tests run on any number of nodes. *Agitation* refers to
+randomly restarting Accumulo processes and Hadoop Datanode processes, and, in
+HDFS High-Availability instances, forcing NameNode failover.
