>  We've done a source-only release in November, 0.60.0-incubating, in sync
>  with features in Hadoop 2.6, with a binary packing version,
>  0.61.0-incubating has just been voted for release (3-feb 2015); the
>  incubator vote is now pending. It was nice to see tests and a vote on the
>  release from an external user & patch submitter -community engagement
>  includes things like this.
> 
>  A new release, 0.70 is being created with the release planned
>  mid-February. This will include improved features and fixes —especially
>  those reported by users of the 0.60 release. For example, one group wanted
>  short-lived applications on secure clusters, instances where Slider does
>  not need to worry about keytab expiry. Another need of people writing
>  slider-deployed applications was for a placement policy of "only ever ask
>  for component placement where instances were before"; this is needed for
>  Kafka.
> 
>  Some of the feature requests are quite "ambitious", especially those
>  related to deployed components providing information back to the Web/REST
>  GUIs, and extending the configuration model to include: more
>  on-target-machine configuration, per-instance configuration and better
>  strategies for placing components within the YARN cluster. These requests
>  do represent real needs; even if they are long term features we need to
>  think about how to get there.
> 
>  We're discussing supplementing the dev@ mailing list with issues@ and
>  user@ lists; the issues list for all JIRA updates -creation and completion
>  would still go to the developer list. This is to separate the noise of
>  JIRA-centric development from a developer list focused on broader
>  application features and building a community. We don't want to scare
>  people off from too much JIRA, or worse: lose what they have to say in the
>  emails. Similarly, the user@ list is where we want to encourage users. The
>  original rationale for a single list was "one single community
>  discussion", but it's not clear its worked out that way.
