Good news Roman!
About connecting with other projects.
HBase is compiling with 0.22.
For Pig there is
For Hive created
The direction with Hive and Pig is to create shim layers for different versions.
Don't know about the API delta between .22 and .23 yet. I assume it is
less than 0.20 vs 0.22. But I may be wrong.
