This is a live project and you can read about the roadmap for the project

Apache Drill has some commonalities with Impala but it is also very
different in that it is trying to make data exploration very easy for
customers on Hadoop without the need to create and manage schemas in Hive
metastore. It has some unique capabilities such as being able to do SQL
queries directly against self describing data such as JSON, Parquet, issue
queries against HBase tables. Drill also provides ability to work with
semi-strcutured/nested data in these sources.

Ultimately it depends on the use case on which is the right technology to
pick, but the above is the high level difference.
Hope that helps.
