2. Several distributed clustering implementations: k-Means, Fuzzy k- 
Means, Dirchlet, Mean-Shift and Canopy
3. Distributed Naive Bayes and Complementary Naive Bayes  
classification implementations

evolutionary programming library
5.  Most implementations are built on top of Apache Hadoop (http://hadoop.apache.org 
) for scalability

The release contents have been pushed out to the main Apache release
