Re: HBase - stable versions
Kiru Pakkirisamy 2013-09-09, 23:03
When is 0.96 release being planned ? Right now we are testing against 0.95.2 as this does not seem to have the HBASE-9410 bug. 

 
Regards,
- kiru

As long as there is interest for 0.94, we will care for 0.94. However, when
0.96.0 comes out, it will be marked as the next stable release, so I expect
that we would promote newcomers that branch.

Any committer can propose any branch and release candidate any time, so if
there are road blocks for 0.94.x mainline, you might as well propose a new
branch.
