This release includes a first version of [GraphX](http://amplab.github.io/graphx/), a powerful new framework for graph processing that comes with a library of standard algorithms. In addition, [Spark Streaming]({{site.url}}streaming/) is now out of alpha, and includes significant optimizations and simplified high availability deployment.

There was quite a bit more demand than we anticipated, with over 80 people signing up and 64 attending. The first meetup was an <a href="http://www.meetup.com/spark-users/events/94101942/">introduction to Spark internals</a>. Thanks to one of the attendees, there’s now a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49Hr5xZyTEA">video of the meetup</a> on YouTube. We’ve also posted the <a href="http://files.meetup.com/3138542/dev-meetup-dec-2012.pptx">slides</a>. Look to see more development meetups on Spark and Shark in the future.</p>

The first meetup was an <a href="http://www.meetup.com/spark-users/events/94101942/">introduction to Spark internals</a>.

 <p>Apache Spark 0.8.1 is a maintenance and performance release for the Scala 2.9 version of Spark. It also adds several new features, such as standalone mode high availability, that will appear in Spark 0.9 but developers wanted to have in Scala 2.9. Contributions to 0.8.1 came from 41 developers.</p>
 
 <h3 id="yarn-22-support">YARN 2.2 Support</h3>
-<p>Support has been added for running Spark on YARN 2.2 and newer. Due to a change in the YARN API between previous versions and 2.2+, this was not supported in Spark 0.8.0. See the <a href="/docs/0.8.1/running-on-yarn.html">YARN documentation</a> for specific instructions on how to build Spark for YARN 2.2+. We&#8217;ve also included a pre-compiled binary for YARN 2.2.</p>

 <h3 id="high-availability-mode-for-standalone-cluster-manager">High Availability Mode for Standalone Cluster Manager</h3>
 <p>The standalone cluster manager now has a high availability (H/A) mode which can tolerate master failures. This is particularly useful for long-running applications such as streaming jobs and the shark server, where the scheduler master previously represented a single point of failure. Instructions for deploying H/A mode are included <a href="/docs/0.8.1/spark-standalone.html#high-availability">in the documentation</a>. The current implementation uses Zookeeper for coordination.</p>

-  <li>Shuffle file consolidation (off by default) - reduces the number of files created in large shuffles for better filesystem performance. This change works best on filesystems newer than ext3 (we recommend ext4 or XFS), and it will be the default in Spark 0.9, but we’ve left it off by default for compatibility. We recommend users turn this on unless they are using ext3 by setting <code>spark.shuffle.consolidateFiles</code> to &#8220;true&#8221;.</li>
