Subject Re: Apache Hadoop 2.8.2 Release Plan
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2017 18:23:46 GMT
Thanks for suggestions, Jason and Kihwal!
+1 on releasing 2.8.2 on latest branch-2.8 too. Practically, if branch-2.8.2 cannot be abandoned/replaced
(suspect all branches are read-only now), I will manually merge all commits that not landed
on 2.8.2 yet.

Subject: Re: Apache Hadoop 2.8.2 Release Plan

+1 to base the 2.8.2 release off of the more recent activity on branch-2.8.  Because branch-2.8.2
was cut so long ago it is missing a lot of fixes that are in branch-2.8.  There also are a
lot of JIRAs that claim they are fixed in 2.8.2 but are not in branch-2.8.2.  Having the 2.8.2
release be based on recent activity in branch-2.8 would solve both of these issues, and we'd
only need to move the handful of JIRAs that have marked themselves correctly as fixed in 2.8.3
to be fixed in 2.8.2.

 Thanks for driving the next 2.8 release, Junping. While I was committing a blocker for 2.7.4,
I noticed some of the jiras are back-ported to 2.7, but missing in branch-2.8.2.  Perhaps
it is safer and easier to simply rebranch 2.8.2.

Hi all,
    Per Vinod's previous email, we just announce Apache Hadoop 2.8.1 get released today which
is a special security release. Now, we should work towards 2.8.2 release which aim for production
deployment. The focus obviously is to fix blocker/critical issues [2], bug-fixes and *no*
features / improvements. We currently have 13 blocker/critical issues, and 10 of them are
Patch Available.

  I plan to cut an RC in a month - target for releasing before end of Aug., to give enough
time for outstanding blocker / critical issues. Will start moving out any tickets that are
not blockers and/or won't fit the timeline. For progress of releasing effort, please refer
our release wiki [2].

  Please share thoughts if you have any. Thanks!

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Hadoop 2.8.1 is released

Hi all,

The Apache Hadoop PMC has released version 2.8.1. You can get it from this page: http://hadoop.apache.org/releases.html#Download
This is a security release in the 2.8.0 release line. It consists of 2.8.0 plus security fixes.
Users on 2.8.0 are encouraged to upgrade to 2.8.1.

Please note that 2.8.x release line continues to be not yet ready for production use. Critical
issues are being ironed out via testing and downstream adoption. Production users should wait
for a subsequent release in the 2.8.x line.
