The Apache Accumulo project is pleased to announce the release of
Apache Accumulo 2.0.0!  Apache Accumulo 2.0.0 contains many new
features, bug fixes, performance improvements and redesigned 
components.  Hadoop 3 and Java 8 are required for this version.

New users are encouraged to start using 2.0.  Users with older 
versions running should upgrade to the latest 1.9 release before 
they begin migrating to 2.0.  There will continue to be releases for 1.9.

Special thanks to the 40+ developers who made contributions over the 
past 3 years... all your hard work is finally paying off!

Apache Accumulo® is a sorted, distributed key/value store that
provides robust, scalable data storage and retrieval. With
Apache Accumulo, users can store and manage large data sets
across a cluster. Accumulo uses Apache Hadoop's HDFS to store
its data and Apache ZooKeeper for consensus.

This version is now available in Maven Central, and at:
