Re: [ANNOUNCE] Hadoop version 1.2.1 (stable) released
It's still available in archive at
http://archive.apache.org/dist/hadoop/core/.  I can put it back on the main
download site if desired, but the model is that the main download site is
for stuff we actively want people to download.  Here is the relevant quote
from http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToRelease , under the "Publishing"

3. The release directory usually contains just two releases, the most
recent from two branches, with a link named 'stable' to the most recent
recommended version.

Quite a few more than two versions have accumulated, because more than two
branches are active.  But within the Hadoop-1 set I've tried to keep it
minimal.  Since 1.2.1 was accepted as a "stable" release, I saw no reason
to keep 1.1.2, since we'd rather people downloaded 1.2.1.  When 1.3.0 is
produced, since it will be "beta" quality, 1.2.1 will of course remain as
the "stable" version.
