It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Apache Hadoop community has
voted to release Apache Hadoop 2.3.0!
hadoop-2.3.0 is the first release for the year 2014, and brings a number of
enhancements to the core platform, in particular to HDFS.
With this release, there are two significant enhancements to HDFS: • Support for Heterogeneous Storage Hierarchy in HDFS (HDFS-2832) • In-memory Cache for data resident in HDFS via Datanodes (HDFS-4949)
In YARN, we are very excited to see that ResourceManager Automatic Failover
(YARN-149) is nearly complete; even it isn’t ready for primetime yet. We expect
it to land by the next release i.e. hadoop-2.4. Furthermore, a number of key
operational enhancements have been driven into YARN such as better logging,
error-handling, diagnostics etc.
On the MapReduce side of the house, a key enhancement is MAPREDUCE-4421; with
this we now no longer need to install MapReduce binaries on every machine and
can just use a MapReduce tarball via the YARN DistributedCache by copying it
Of course, a number of bug-fixes, enhancements etc. have also made it into
hadoop-2.3; there-by continuing to improve the core platform. Please see the
release notes for more details.
PS: Here is a CVE for a security fix along with the release.
CVE-2013-6446: Apache Hadoop job history server vulnerability
