+The `Connector` and `ZooKeeperInstance` objects have been deprecated and replaced by
+`AccumuloClient` which is created from the `Accumulo` entry point. The new API also deprecates
+`ClientConfiguration` and introduces its own properties file called ``
+that ships with the Accumulo tarball. The new API has the following benefits over the old
+  * All connection information can be specifed in properties file to create the client. This
was not

+  * The new API does not require `ZooKeeperInstance` to be created first before creating
