Near to 450 issues have been addressed since the 0.19 branch. Release notes
are available here: http://su.pr/18zcEO <http://tinyurl.com/8xmyx9>.
HBase 0.20.0 runs on Hadoop 0.20.0. Alot has changed since 0.19.x including
configuration fundamentals. Be sure to read the 'Getting Started'
documentation in 0.20.0 available here: http://su.pr/8YQjHO
If you wish to bring your 0.19.x hbase data forward to 0.20.0, you will need
to run a migration. See http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hbase/HowToMigrate.
First read the overview and then go to the section, 'From 0.19.x to 0.20.x'.
