Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache HBase 2.0.0-beta-2 is now available for download
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2018 17:57:06 GMT
The HBase team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Apache
​HBase​ 2.0.0-beta-2!

Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, non-relational
database. Apache HBase gives you low latency random access to billions of
rows with millions of columns atop non-specialized hardware. To learn more
about HBase, see https://hbase.apache.org/.

Download through an ASF mirror:


(It may take a while to show up on a particular mirror site)

hbase-2.0.0-beta-2 is our second beta release. It includes all that was in
previous alphas
and the previous beta (new assignment manager, offheap read/write path,
compactions, etc.).

hbase-2.0.0-beta-2 is a not-for-production preview of hbase-2.0.0. It is
meant for devs and downstreamers to test drive and flag us if we messed up
on anything ahead of our rolling
2.0.0 release candidates ("GAs").

The list of features addressed in 2.0.0 so far can be found here [3]. There
are thousands.
The list of ~2k+ fixes in 2.0.0 exclusively can be found here [4].

I've updated our overview doc. on the state of 2.0.0 [6]. Next up are
actual 2.0.0 release
candidates. Look for them in a week or so after we do up a bit more doc and
test. Here is
the list of what is outstanding against 2.0.0 [5]. Only blockers will hold
up release.

One known issue is that the User API has not been properly filtered so it
shows more than
just InterfaceAudience Public content (HBASE-19663, to be fixed).
