At the beginning of September, we announced the first release of CDH2, our current testing repository. Packages in our testing repository are recommended for people who want more features and are willing to upgrade as bugs are worked out. Our testing packages pass unit and functional tests but will not have the same “soak time” as our stable packages. A testing release represents a work in progress that will eventually be promoted to stable.
We plan on pushing new packages into the testing repository every 3 to 6 weeks. And it just so happens it is just about 3 weeks after we announced the first testing release. So it must be time for a new one. Here are some of the highlights:
In March of this year, we released our distribution for Apache Hadoop. Our initial focus was on stability and making Hadoop easy to install. This original distribution, now named CDH1, was based on the most stable version of Apache Hadoop at the time:0.18.3. We packaged up Apache Hadoop, Pig and Hive into RPMs and Debian packages to make managing Hadoop installations easier. For the first time ever, Hadoop cluster managers were able to bring up a deployment by running one of the following commands depending on your Linux distribution:
# yum install hadoop # apt-get install hadoop

A number of organizations donate server space and bandwidth to the Apache Foundation; when you download Apache Hadoop, Tomcat, Maven, CouchDB, or any of the other great Apache projects, the bits are sent to you from a large list of mirrors. One of the ways in which Cloudera supports the open source community is to host such a mirror.
Today I did a web search for “pig training” using my favorite search engine. I was wildly entertained by the results, and have embedded my favorite for your viewing pleasure.
