+title: Apache Kudu Weekly Update August 8th, 2016
+author: Todd Lipcon
+Welcome to the nineteenth edition of the Kudu Weekly Update. This weekly blog post
+covers ongoing development and news in the Apache Kudu project.
+## Development discussions and code in progress
+* After a couple months of work, Dan Burkert finished
+  [adding add/remove range partition support](https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/3648/)
+  in the C++ client and in the master.
+  Dan also posted a patch for review which [adds support for this
+  feature](https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/3854/) to the Java client. Dan is
+  expecting that this will be finished in time for the upcoming Kudu 0.10.0
+  release.
+  Misty Stanley-Jones started working on [documentation for this
+  feature](https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/3796/). Readers of this
+  blog are encouraged to check out the docs and provide feedback!
+* Adar Dembo also completed fixing most of the issues related to high availability
+  using multiple Kudu master processes. The upcoming Kudu 0.10.0 release will support
+  running multiple masters and transparently handling a transient failure of any
+  master process.
+  Although multi-master should now be stable, some work remains in this area. Namely,
+  Adar is working on a [design for handling permanent failure of a machine hosting
+  a master](https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/3393/). In this case, the administrator
+  will need to use some new tools to create a new master replica by copying data from
+  an existing one.
+* Todd Lipcon started a
+  [discussion](https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-kudu-dev/201607.mbox/%3CCADY20s5WdR7KmB%3DEAHJwvzELhe9PXfnnGMLV%2B4t%3D%3Defw%3Dix8uw%40mail.gmail.com%3E)
+  on the dev mailing list about renaming the Kudu feature which creates new
+  replicas of tablets after they become under-replicated.  Since its initial
+  introduction, this feature was called "remote bootstrap", but Todd pointed out
+  that this naming caused some confusion with the other "bootstrap" term used to
+  describe the process by which a tablet loads itself at startup.
+  The discussion concluded with an agreement to rename the process to "Tablet Copy".
+  Todd provided patches to perform this rename, which were committed at the end of the
+  week last week.
+* Congratulations to Attila Bukor for his first commit to Kudu! Attila
+  [fixed an error in the quick-start documentation](https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/3820/).
+## News and articles from around the web
+* The New Stack published an [introductory article about Kudu](http://thenewstack.io/apache-kudu-fast-columnar-data-store-hadoop/).
+  The article was based on a recent interview with Todd Lipcon
+  and covers topics such as the origin of the name "Kudu", where Kudu fits into the
+  Apache Hadoop ecosystem, and goals for the upcoming 1.0 release.
+Want to learn more about a specific topic from this blog post? Shoot an email to the
+[kudu-user mailing list](mailto:user@kudu.apache.org) or
+tweet at [@ApacheKudu](https://twitter.com/ApacheKudu). Similarly, if you're
+aware of some Kudu news we missed, let us know so we can cover it in
+a future post.
