We are happy to announce the availability of the Spark SQL on HBase 1.0.0 release.
The main features in this package, dubbed "Astro", include:

*         Systematic and powerful handling of data pruning and intelligent scan, based on
partial evaluation technique

*         HBase pushdown capabilities like custom filters and coprocessor to support ultra
low latency processing

*         SQL, Data Frame support

*         More SQL capabilities made possible (Secondary index, bloom filter, Primary Key,
Bulk load, Update)

*         Joins with data from other sources

*         Python/Java/Scala support

*         Support latest Spark 1.4.0 release

The tests by Huawei team and community contributors covered the areas: bulk load; projection
pruning; partition pruning; partial evaluation; code generation; coprocessor; customer filtering;
DML; complex filtering on keys and non-keys; Join/union with non-Hbase data; Data Frame; multi-column
family test.  We will post the test results including performance tests the middle of August.
You are very welcomed to try out or deploy the package, and help improve the integration tests
with various combinations of the settings, extensive Data Frame tests, complex join/union
test and extensive performance tests.  Please use the "Issues" "Pull Requests" links at this
package homepage, if you want to report bugs, improvement or feature requests.
Special thanks to project owner and technical leader Yan Zhou, Huawei global team, community
contributors and Databricks.   Databricks has been providing great assistance from the design
to the release.
"Astro", the Spark SQL on HBase package will be useful for ultra low latency query and analytics
of large scale data sets in vertical enterprises. We will continue to work with the community
