that went into making the code stable enough for production use, memory
efficient, and performant.
> Apache Giraph is an scalable and distributed iterative graph processing
system that is inspired by BSP (bulk synchronous parallel) and Google's
Pregel.  Giraph distinguishes itself from those projects by being
open-source, running on Hadoop infrastructure, and going beyond the Pregel
model with features such as master computation, sharded aggregators,
out-of-core support, no single point of failure design, and more.

and can use primitive specific types when better performance is required

made this release possible!  We've also been investing in updating our
website as part of this release (, more
documentation/updates will be coming in the near future.  We expect that
releases will happen more frequently in the future now that we are more
familiar with the process.
