Apache HBase 0.92.1 is now available. This release is a marked improvement in system correctness, availability, and ease of use. It’s also backwards compatible with 0.92.0 — except for the removal of the rarely-used transform functionality from the REST interface in HBASE-5228.
Apache HBase 0.92.1 is a bug fix release covering 61 issues – including 6 blockers and 6 critical issues, such as:
- HBASE-5121 which ensures scans work properly while major compactions are occurring
- Several fixes that prevent crashes in edge-case situations (HBASE-5279, HBASE-4890, and HBASE-5415)
- Fixing the build system so the release includes security sources and Javadocs
- HBASE-5267 which fixes some configuration problems with the slab cache
A big thanks to our tireless release manager, Michael Stack, and everyone who contributed to the release (reporting issues, fixing bugs, reviewing changes, writing documentation, etc).
