fixes only. This release series does '''not''' support HDFS durability - edits may be lost
in the case of node failure.
-  * '''0.89''' - a development release series with active feature and stability development,
not currently recommended for production use. This release '''does''' support HDFS durability

  The 0.89 series is a departure from the previous sequential (0.18, 0.19, 0.20) versioning.
Here is a short FAQ describing the version numbering and purpose of this series:
  
- === Why skip from 0.20 to 0.89? ===
+ === Why skip from 0.20 to 0.89 (0.90)? ===
  
  The last few releases of HBase have been in lockstep with Hadoop releases (eg hbase 0.X.*
would work with Hadoop 0.X.*). However, Hadoop's release process has slowed down, and we have
the desire to release HBase on a different timeline from Hadoop, with each HBase release potentially
being compatible with multiple versions of Hadoop. To signify this departure from lockstep
releases, and since we intend for the next release of HBase to continue to support Hadoop
0.20, we don't want to call the next release 0.21.
