The HBase team is happy to announce the immediate availability of HBase 1.2.0.

Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, non-relational database.
Apache HBase gives you low latency random access to billions of rows with
millions of columns atop non-specialized hardware. To learn more about HBase,

HBase 1.2.0 is the second minor release in the HBase 1.x line, which aims to
improve the stability and reliability of HBase. This release includes roughly

Notable new features include:
- JDK8 is now supported
- Hadoop 2.6.1+ and Hadoop 2.7.1+ are now supported
