a couple major bugs have shown up in Hadoop-1.0.2. I propose to make a
1.0.3 release containing fixes for:
MR job succeeds even if the streaming command fails
- HDFS-119 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-119> logSync() may
block NameNode forever.
We will also accept the following bug fixes already committed to branch-1.0
CHANGES.txt): HADOOP-6924, HADOOP-6941, HADOOP-8188, HDFS-3127,
MAPREDUCE-3377, HADOOP-5528, HADOOP-6963, HADOOP-8251, HADOOP-8293.
If there are other critical bugs you would like to see in 1.0.3, please let
me know by end of day Monday, 4/23. I'll start the process of making a
1.0.3 RC-1 on Tuesday.
Also, it seems that it is time to do a 1.1 release. Some 80 bug fixes and
enhancements have accumulated in branch-1. Hopefully they've all been
properly reviewed and unit tested! Let's declare a code freeze for 1.1 at
the end of this month. At that time I will make a branch-1.1 and a release
candidate for 1.1.0.
