Subject Re: Apache Atlas 2.1 release
Date Sun, 17 May 2020 06:17:10 GMT
Atlas community,


In the past 3 months since I sent the email on Apache Atlas 2.1 release, the community has
added 100+ commits to improve various areas like search, UI, performance, authorization, bulk
import of glossary & business-metadata, support for ADLS-Ge2 and AWS-S3 entity types,
updated JanusGraph version. Thanks to everyone who contributed to Apache Atlas - making it
a feature rich, enterprise-ready, open-source governance tool backed by a thriving community.


Let’s started on Apache Atlas 2.1 release! I volunteer to be the release-manager for this
release and propose the following timeline:
05/18, Mon: branch-2.0 goes into lockdown mode to prepare for 2.1 release. During lockdown
period, only commits for release-blocker issues must be merged in branch-2.0. Master branch
will remain open for all commits
05/18 – 05/22, Mon – Fri: community to validate branch-2.0 builds and address release-blocker
05/25, Mon: release candidate out for vote by the community
05/29, Fri: release Apache Atlas 2.1, assuming successful completion of votes

Please review and let me know your comments/suggestions.

Subject: Apache Atlas 2.1 release


Atlas community,


Over past months the dev community has been busy in enhancing Apache Atlas with new features,
improvements and fixes. Here are few features/enhancements since last major release, Apache
Atlas 2.0:

    - added quick-search feature, to provide a simpler search experience with type-ahead suggestions

    - introduced Namespaces feature, which allows grouping of attributes to be applied to
multiple entity-types

    - introduced labels on entity instances, and search for entities using the label

    - enhancement to support entity instance specific custom attributes

    - enhanced search to find entities by more than one classification

    - introduced shell/incomplete entities to handle notifications referencing entities that
don’t (yet) exist in Atlas

    - added REST APIs to purge deleted entities

    - performance improvements in lineage retrieval and tag-propagation

    - updated Atlas server to process notifications from multiple Kafka topics

    - updated Hive hook to track process executions, via hive_process_execution entities

    - updated Hive hook to capture DDL operations, via hive_db_ddl and hive_table_ddl entities

    - added models for Spark; introduced new models for AWS S3

    - updated versions of dependent libraries/components: JanusGraph, Jackson parser, Spring

    - updated authorization model to cover new features/APIs, like add/remove labels, purge
entities, update namespace attributes


With significant improvements in place, it is time for the next maintenance release of Apache


I propose to release Apache Atlas 2.1 by early next month. Please review and send your comments.
