Subject Re: [DISCUSS] What we expect in upgrades to HBase 2.0.0
Date Sun, 29 Oct 2017 01:24:32 GMT
Is there anything in 1.4* not in 1.2 that would warrant that? Otherwise I agree, not requiring
an intermediate upgrade step would be best. Requiring a double upgrade would be super operator

* - Should everything go reasonably well we will have a 1.4.0 release before December. I'm
going to do the first RC next week.
