Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Kudu 1.0.0 release
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 07:11:56 GMT
The Apache Kudu team is happy to announce the release of Kudu 1.0.0!

Kudu is an open source storage engine for structured data which supports
low-latency random access together with efficient analytical access
patterns. It is designed within the context of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem
and supports many integrations with other data analytics projects both
inside and outside of the Apache Software Foundation.

This latest version adds several new features, including:

- Removal of multiversion concurrency control (MVCC) history is now
supported. This allows Kudu to reclaim disk space, where previously Kudu
would keep a full history of all changes made to a given table since the
beginning of time.

- Most of Kudu’s command line tools have been consolidated under a new
top-level "kudu" tool. This reduces the number of large binaries
distributed with Kudu and also includes much-improved help output.

- Administrative tools including "kudu cluster ksck" now support running
against multi-master Kudu clusters.

- The C++ client API now supports writing data in AUTO_FLUSH_BACKGROUND
mode. This can provide higher throughput for ingest workloads.

This release also includes many bug fixes, optimizations, and other
improvements, detailed in the release notes available at:

Convenience binary artifacts for the Java client and various Java
integrations (eg Spark, Flume) are also now available via the ASF Maven

Enjoy the new release!
