Apache Bigtop 0.3.0 (incubating) has been released

Categories: Community General Hadoop

Apache Bigtop 0.3.0 (incubating) is now available. This is the first fully integrated, community-driven, 100% Apache Big Data management distribution based on Apache Hadoop 1.0. In addition to a major change in the Hadoop version, all of the Hadoop ecosystem components have been upgraded to the latest stable versions and thoroughly tested:

  • Apache Hadoop 1.0.1
  • Apache Zookeeper 3.4.3
  • Apache HBase 0.92.0
  • Apache Hive 0.8.1
  • Apache Pig 0.9.2
  • Apache Mahout 0.6.1
  • Apache Oozie 3.1.3
  • Apache Sqoop 1.4.1
  • Apache Flume 1.0.0
  • Apache Whirr 0.7.0

The list of supported Linux platforms has expanded to:

  • Fedora 15 and 16
  • CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
  • SuSE Linux Enterprise 11
  • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
  • Mageia 1

This, we hope, will make our user community’s experience running Apache Hadoop the most seamless Bigtop experience to date: just follow our Installation Guide and you will have your first pseudo-distributed Hadoop PI or Hive query running in no time.

If you’re thinking about deploying Bigtop to a fully-distributed cluster you might find our improved Puppet code to be of assistance. There is some brief documentation  on how to run our Puppet recipes in a master-less puppet configuration, but they should work just fine in a typical Puppet master setup as well.

Whatever you do, don’t forget to check us out at Apache and consider getting involved. Bigtop is a community-driven effort and we need your help. Of course, above all we need you to use Bigtop and give us your the feedback.

Happy Big Data discoveries,
Your faithful and tireless Bigtop development team!

    Puppet “documentation” link is dead.

    And isn’t there a 0.4 release? I didn’t see any info here in the blog about that, only an old 0.3 release posting.
