Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Hadoop 2.7.0 Release
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 23:50:06 GMT
Hi all,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Apache Hadoop community has
voted to release Apache Hadoop 2.7.0.

Hadoop 2.7.0 is the first major release for the year 2015 in the Hadoop-2.x
line, and brings a number of enhancements.


   - This release *drops* support for JDK6 runtime and works with JDK 7+
   - This release is *not* yet ready for production use. Critical issues
   are being ironed out via testing and downstream adoption. Production users
   should wait for a 2.7.1/2.7.2 release.

The release has 535 resolved issues with the following breakdown

   - 160 in Hadoop Common
   - 192 in HDFS
   - 148 in YARN
   - 35 MapReduce
