Subject Re: MultipleInputs in hadoop 0.20.2

0.20.x supports the older API and it has been 're-deemed' as the
stable one. You shouldn't face any hesitation in using it as even 0.23
would carry it (although there its properly deprecated). This is quite
some confusion but I guess you still won't have some of the old API
features in the new one.

FWIW the trunk/future-branches have new API MultipleInputs you can
pull and include in your project. Also, alternative distributions that
do stable backports may carry MultipleInputs in the new API (I use
CDH3 and it does have mapreduce.lib.input.MultipleInputs backported in
