> Document usage for hcatalog 1.1

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: io-java-hcatalog, website
>            Reporter: Tim Robertson
>            Assignee: Tim Robertson

> The {{HCatalogIO}} does not work with environments providing Hive Server 1.x which is
in widespread use - as an example the latest Cloudera (5.14.2) provides 1.1.x
> The {{HCatalogIO}} marks it's Hive dependencies as provided, so I believe the intention
was to be open to multiple versions.
> The issues come from the following:  
>  - use of {{HCatUtil.getHiveMetastoreClient(hiveConf)}} while previous versions used
the [now deprecated|]
{{getHiveClient(HiveConf hiveConf)}}  
>  - Changes to the signature of {{RetryingMetaStoreClient.getProxy(...)}}
> Given this doesn't work in a major Hadoop distro, and will not until the next CDH release
later in 2018 (i.e. widespread adoption only expected in 2019) I think it would be worthwhile
providing a fix/workaround.
> I _think_ building for 2.3 and relocating in your own app might be a workaround although
I'm still testing it.  If that is successful I'd propose adding it to the project README or
in a separate markdown file linked from the README.
> Does that sound like a reasonable approach please?
