Date Thu, 08 Jun 2017 07:33:57 GMT
The first release candidate for HBase 2.0.0-alpha-1 is up at:


Maven artifacts are available from a staging directory here:


All was signed w/ my key 8ACC93D2

I tagged the RC as 2.0.0-alpha-1RC0

hbase-2.0.0-alpha-1 will be our first 2.0.0 release. It is a rough cut
('alpha') not-for-production preview of what hbase-2.0.0 will look like. It
is what we used to call a 'Developer' release[1] meant mostly for devs and
downstreamers to test drive and flag us early if we there are issues we’ve
missed ahead of our rolling a production-worthy release.

hbase-2.0.0 includes a fleet of new features that include a new assignment
manager, means for keeping read and write path off-heap, in-memory
compactions, and more. I have been keeping a running doc on the state of
2.0.0 here [2]. There is much to do still (see aforementioned doc).

The list of features addressed in 2.0.0 so far can be found here [4]. There
are about 2500. The list of ~500 fixes in 2.0.0 exclusively can be found
here [3].

Please take it for a spin and vote on whether it ok to put out as our first
alpha (bar is low for an 'alpha'). Let the VOTE be open for 24 hours.
