Like with most major releases of Hadoop the releases are API compatible,
but not necessarily binary compatible. That means a job for 1.0 can be
recompiled against 2.0 and it should compile and run similarly to 1.0. If
it does not feel free to file a JAIR on the incompatibility. There have
been a few and we have worked to make them backwards compatible. As far a
binary compatibility is concerned. For the most part you should be able to
run your jobs without recompiling. There are some people trying to make
it as binary compatible as possible, but it is not a guarantee.
I would expect to have a non-alpha semi-stable release of 2.0 by late June
or early July. I am not an expert on this and there are lots of things
that could show up and cause those dates to slip.
