Subject [ANNOUNCE] Hive 0.6.0 is released!
Date Wed, 03 Nov 2010 20:47:13 GMT

The Apache Hive team is proud to announce the release of Hive 0.6.0!

Hive is a data warehouse system for Hadoop that facilitates easy
summarization, ad-hoc querying, and analysis of large datasets stored
in Hadoop compatible file systems. Hive provides a mechanism to put
structure on this data and query the data using a SQL-like language
called HiveQL. At the same time this language also allows traditional
map/reduce programmers to plug in their custom mappers and reducers
when it is inconvenient or inefficient to express this logic in
HiveQL.

Links to Hive 0.6.0 download mirrors can be found on the Hive release
page: http://hive.apache.org/releases.html

Please consult the Getting Started guide for information about
installing and configuring Hive:
http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hive/GettingStarted


PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE UPGRADING FROM AN OLDER VERSION OF HIVE:

- Hive 0.6.0 includes changes to the MetaStore schema. If
  you are upgrading from an earlier version of Hive it is
  imperative that you upgrade the MetaStore schema by
  running the appropriate schema upgrade script located in
  the scripts/metastore/upgrade directory.

  We have provided upgrade scripts for Derby, MySQL, and PostgreSQL
  databases. If you are using a different database for your MetaStore
  you will need to provide your own upgrade script.

- Hive 0.6.0 includes new configuration properties. If you
  are upgrading from an earlier version of Hive it is imperative
  that you replace all of the old copies of the hive-default.xml
  configuration file with the new version located in the conf/
  directory.
