 <h3>Overall status</h3>
 
-This is the first public release of Chukwa, a log analysis framework on top of Hadoop.  Chukwa
has been tested at scale and used in some production settings, and is reasonably robust and
well behaved.  For instructions on setting up Chukwa, see <a href="http://hadoop.apache.org/chukwa/docs/current/admin.html">the
administration guide</a> and the rest of the Chukwa documentation.

-The collection components of Chukwa -- adaptors, agents, and collectors -- are approaching
general-use quality. They've been fairly aggressively tested, and can be counted on to perform
properly and recover from failures.

-HICC, the visualization component, is "beta" quality.  It's been used succesfully at multiple
sites, but it's still brittle. Work is ongoing. Documentation is still sparse, and error reporting
isn't always sufficiently clear. 
+<p>The demux pipeline has been cleaned up somewhat, and is now documented. See <a
href="http://hadoop.apache.org/chukwa/docs/current/programming.html">the programming guide</a>
for a discussion of how to customize demux for your purposes.</p>
 
-Chukwa has not been extensively audited for security vulnerabilities. Do not run it except
in trusted environments. Never run Chukwa as root: By default, the ExecAdaptor allows arbitrary
remote execution.

-<h3>Requirements</h3>
-Chukwa relies on Java 1.6
-The back-end processing requires Hadoop 0.18+.
-Collecting Hadoop logs and metrics requires Hadoop 0.20+.

+
+<h3>Important changes since last release</h3>
+
+<ul>
+<li>The collection of shell scripts in <code>/bin</code> has been significantly
pared down. For instance, instead of <code>bin/agent</code>, you should now say
<code>bin/chuka agent</code>.</li>
+<li>It is now possible to disable remote connections to the Chukwa agent. This makes
Chukwa more suitable for use on a customer-facing deployment</li>.
+<li>Chukwa now includes an adaptor for reading data via a UDP port, the <code>UDPAdaptor</code>.
This should facilitate integration with syslog and similar legacy tools.</li>
+
+<li>
+There have been a number of bug fixes and code cleanups since the last release; check the
changelog and JIRA for details.</li>
+</ul>

+</ul>
 <h3>Known Limitations</h3>
 
 <ul> <li> HICC defaults to assuming data is UTC; if your machines run on local
time, HICC graphs will not display properly until you change the HICC timezone. You can do
this by clicking the small "gear" icon on the time selection tool.
