Subject Supported Hadoop versions
Date Sun, 30 Apr 2017 11:16:17 GMT
Hi Flink,

I filed a ticket [0] that our download page [1] still states

“You don’t have to install Hadoop to use Flink, but if you plan to use Flink with data
stored in Hadoop, pick the version matching your installed Hadoop version. If you don’t
want to do this, pick the Hadoop 1 version.”

1) We no longer offer the Hadoop 1 version, which I expect was chosen due to its smaller size.
What is the new recommendation?

2) Should we reference, for example, “Hadoop 2.7” (as with the binary filenames) rather
than “Hadoop 2.7.0” since we are actually testing and releasing against Hadoop 2.7.2?

3) Should Flink 1.3.0 support the recently released Hadoop 2.8.0? Is this the time to drop
older versions (which users can easily build)? This would also be the time to bump the patch
versions in .travis.yml and create-release-files.sh.

I ask because I think it is important to present this choice well since it is likely to be
a new users first decision point.
