Subject Re: Should I upgrade from 0.18.3 to the latest 0.20.1?
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 01:57:59 GMT
The old API may be deprecated, but it still works and you don't have to change your code yet.

A later release will remove the old API altogether.  0.20.1+ is a good place to run your old
code and learn some of the newer stuff.

There may be many other features you can get good use of (Schedulers, multiple tasks per JVM,
general performance improvements, etc).
If those features are compelling enough, you might consider an upgrade.

I've been working on my project for about a year, and I decided to upgrade
from 0.18.3 (which was stable and already old even back then). I have
started, but I see that many classes have changed, many are deprecated, and
I need to re-write some code. Is it worth it? What are the advantages of
doing this? Other areas of concern are:

   - Will Amazon EMR work with the latest Hadoop?
   - What about Cloudera distribution or Yahoo distribution?

Thank you,
