Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Hadoop 1.0?

Hey Guys,

My super +1 for calling one 0.20.205 as 1.0.

1 point oh!

significant progress, even in 2011 - we've had 3 releases off the branch-0.20-security (0.20.205
being the latest) and we just released 0.23.0 last week, our first major release off trunk
in a while.

we've wanted for a while and I think it's time for us to just ship it. Linus did something
similar with GNU/Linux 3.0.

but right now we have a pretty decent piece of software i.e.  the feature set in hadoop-0.20.205
is compelling and widely used. We could call hadoop-0.23 (or 0.22) as 2.0 etc. I do think
we, as a community, can support compatibility in the hadoop-1.x series, which is the essential
ingredient. This isn't a brand new idea, Doug suggested this a long while ago.
