 ==== Tested Versions
-Another large consideration for Accumulo stability is to use versions of
-software that have been tested together in a VM environment. Any cluster of
-processes that have not been tested together are likely to expose running
-conditions that vary from the environments individually tested in the various
-components. For example, Accumulo's use of HDFS includes many short block
-reads, which differs from the more common full file read used in most

-a week under heavy ingest and query load. We expect that results will vary with

+Each release of Accumulo is built with a specific version of Apache
+Hadoop, Apache ZooKeeper and Apache Thrift.  We expect Accumulo to
+work with versions that are API compatable with those versions.
+However this compatibility is not guaranteed because Hadoop, ZooKeeper
+and Thift may not provide guarantees between their own versions. We
+have also found that certain versions of Accumulo and Hadoop included
+bugs that greatly affected overall stability.  Thrift is particularly
+prone to compatablity changes between versions and you must use the
+same version your Accumulo is built with.
