Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Knox 0.14.0 Release
Date Thu, 14 Dec 2017 16:19:53 GMT
The Apache Knox team is proud to announce the release of Apache Knox 0.14.0!

Apache Knox is a REST API Gateway for providing secure access to the data
and processing resources of Hadoop clusters. More details on Apache Knox
can be found at: http://knox.apache.org/

This release is primarily focused on improving the manageability aspects of
Knox.
KIP-8 detailed the focus on leveraging ecosystem APIs as service registries
(Apache Ambari) and having a remote location to discovery configuration
rather than local disk for every Knox instance. This feature will work
alongside of existing support for authoring topology XML files but will
begin to focus administrative actions on the simplified descriptors to
generate topologies.

This release will be followed up shortly by another with package changes
and minor bug fixes to represent our 1.0.0 release.

Some of the highlights of this release are:

   - Service Discovery from Ambari for Topology Generation
   - Simplified Descriptors to Drive Topology Generation
   - Monitoring of ZooKeeper for Remote Configuration
   - Shared Provider Configuration Across Topologies
   - Related Admin API and UI Changes
   - Nifi Proxy Support
   - Livy API Proxy Support
   - HA Support For Apache SOLR, HBase & Kafka
   - Websocket Support Improvements
   - Many other improvements and bug fixes!
