Subject Re: Plans for a 0.21 Hadoop Release
Date Sun, 11 Apr 2010 15:49:03 GMT
Hi Owen,

Thanks for your offer to review the work I've been doing on
compatibility. If pushing back the freeze date will help us stabilize
the public API, then I'm OK moving it to 30 April.

On the serialization changes, I'm +1 to backing out the changes since
0.20 rather than trying to get new changes in for 0.21.
