+=== Release notes specific to 0.7.0
+Kudu 0.7.0 is the first release done as part of the Apache Incubator and includes a number
+of changes, new features, improvements, and fixes.

+changes between 0.6.0 and 0.7.0</a>+++.
+==== Incompatible changes
+. The C++ client includes a new API, `KuduScanBatch`, which performs better when a
+large number of small rows are returned in a batch. The old API of `vector<KuduRowResult>`
+is deprecated.
+NOTE: This change is API-compatible but *not* ABI-compatible.
+. The default replication factor has been changed from 1 to 3. Existing tables will
+continue to use the replication factor they were created with. Applications that create
+tables may not work properly if they assume a replication factor of 1 and fewer than
+3 replicas are available. To use the previous default replication factor, start the
+master with the configuration flag `--default_num_replicas=1`.
+. The Python client has been completely rewritten, with a focus on improving code
+quality and testing. The read path (scanners) has been improved by adding many of
+the features already supported by the C++ and Java clients. The Python client is no
+longer considered experimental.
+==== New features
+. With the goal of Spark integration in mind, a new `kuduRDD` API has been added,
+which wraps `newAPIHadoopRDD` and includes a default source for Spark SQL.
+==== Improvements
+. The Java client includes new methods `countPendingErrors()` and
+`getPendingErrors()` on `KuduSession`. These methods allow you to count and
+retrieve outstanding row errors when configuring sessions with `AUTO_FLUSH_BACKGROUND`.
+. New server-level metrics allow you to monitor CPU usage and context switching.
+==== Fixed Issues
+. https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/KUDU-1288[KUDU-1288] fixes a severe file descriptor
+leak, which could previously only be resolved by restarting the tablet server.
+. https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/KUDU-1250[KUDU-1250] fixes a hang in the Java
+client when processing an in-flight batch and the previous batch encountered an error.
+==== Other noteworthy changes
+. The file block manager's performance was improved, but it is still not recommended for
+real-world use.
+. The master now attempts to spread tablets more evenly across the cluster during
+table creation. This has no impact on existing tables, but will improve the speed
+at which under-replicated tabletsare re-replicated after a tablet server failure.
+. All licensing documents have been modified to adhere to ASF guidelines.
+. Kudu now requires an out-of-tree build directory. Review the build instructions
+for additional information.
+. The `C++` client library is now explicitly built against the
+link:https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstdc++/manual/using_dual_abi.html[old gcc5 ABI].
+If you use gcc5 to build a Kudu application, your application must use the old ABI
+as well. This is typically achieved by defining the `_GLIBCXX_USE_CXX11_ABI` macro
+at compile-time when building your application. For more information, see the
+previous link and link:http://developerblog.redhat.com/2015/02/05/gcc5-and-the-c11-abi/.
