Marcos makes a good point btw - Move from 1.x to 2.x also involves
recompiling your existing MR apps (if they are already built with
maven, thats not too much work to do). But other than a few obvious
issues caught by the java compiler, the APIs remain the same.

Yes, the MR jobs and other apps would need to be recompiled along with this.

Am unsure of a formal location for this. Perhaps a dev can comment. I
merely try to follow as many JIRAs as I can. I do know snapshots and
protobuf RPCs are some of the major work being done for this version,
but others would probably know better.
