On Friday 14 Oct, the Hadoop community voted ten to zero (including four PMC
members voting in favor) to accept the release of Hadoop 0.20.205.0.
The biggest feature of this release is that it merges the
append/hsync/hflush features of branch-0.20-append, and security features of
branch-0.20-security. Therefore, this is the first official Apache Hadoop
release that supports HBase in secure mode!
Thanks to everyone who contributed bug fixes, merges, and improvements. It
was truly a community effort.
