Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Drill 1.16.0 Release
Date Thu, 02 May 2019 18:07:58 GMT
On behalf of the Apache Drill community, I am happy to announce the release
of Apache Drill 1.16.0.

Drill is an Apache open-source SQL query engine for Big Data exploration.
Drill is designed from the ground up to support high-performance analysis
on the semi-structured and rapidly evolving data coming from modern Big
Data applications, while still providing the familiarity and ecosystem of
ANSI SQL, the industry-standard query language. Drill provides
plug-and-play integration with existing Apache Hive and Apache HBase

For information about Apache Drill, and to get involved, visit the project
website [1].
