Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Hadoop 2.6.1 Release
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2015 05:00:44 GMT
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Apache Hadoop community has
voted to release Apache Hadoop 2.6.1.

Hadoop 2.6.1 is the first point release in the Hadoop-2.6.x line. It almost
entirely is comprised of critical bug fixes (and their dependent patches)
done by the community on and backported from the 2.7 and the in-progress
2.8 lines.

The release has 158 resolved issues with the following breakdown

   - 21 in Hadoop Common
   - 56 in HDFS
   - 71 in YARN
   - 10 MapReduce

Please see the Hadoop 2.6.1 Release Notes
for the list of 158 bug fixes since the previous release 2.6.0.

The release news is posted on the Hadoop website too, you can go to the
downloads section directly (http://hadoop.apache.org/releases.html#Download
). The release documentation is up at http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.6.1/.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the release!

Special shout-out to Sangjin Lee and Akira Ajisaka who helped me with this
particularly long release process comprising of numerous patch backports.
