Yes, I apologize for confusing release numbering, but the best release to use is It includes security, job limits, and many other improvements over 0.20.2 and 0.21.0. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the new sync support so it isn't suitable for using with HBase. Most large clusters use a separate version of HDFS for HBase.
