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/.

HBase 2.1.7 is the latest release of the HBase 2.1 line, continuing on the theme of bringing a stable, reliable database to the Apache Big Data ecosystem and beyond. 2.1.7 includes ~61 bug and improvement fixes done since the 2.1.6. We upgrade jackson to 2.9.10 due to CVE-2019-16335 and CVE-2019-14540. We fixed a critical bug in CatalogJanitor which may cause data loss and it effects 2.1.6 and 2.0.6, please see HBASE-23044 for more details. There is also a very nice new feature hbtop, please see HBASE-11062 for more details.
