Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Hadoop 1.0?
Hey Guys,

My super +1 for calling one 0.20.205 as 1.0.

1 point oh!

We could call hadoop-0.23 (or 0.22) as 2.0 etc. I do think we, as a community, can support compatibility in the hadoop-1.x series, which is the essential ingredient. This isn't a brand new idea, Doug suggested this a long while ago.
