Any release in the 1.0.x line should be equally compatible, so is there any reason not to use the latest in that line?
I try to use hbase-0.92.1 which is compatible with hadoop-1.0.0. However, I do not see this version of hadoop in the download page. For example, http://apache.mirrors.pair.com/hadoop/common/
I wondered why it was excluded from the list?
