Release of Apache Bigtop 0.7.0

Exciting times for the Apache Bigtop community and the Apache Hadoop ecosystem at large with the release of the brand new Apache Bigtop 0.7.0!

This new release brings tons of new features and fixes for the beloved 100% community and open source driven big data distribution.

Among the new features:

  • Addition of Phoenix, the Apache HBase SQL layer project

  • Addition of Apache Spark (incubating), the general-purpose cluster computing system

  • A brand new SolrCloud 4.5 integration with HDFS

  • Improvement to our puppet recipes so setting up your Apache Bigtop toolchain will be easier than ever

  • Addition of a new script init-hdfs.sh to initialize Apache HDFS filesystem structure so you can get up and running without manually setting up a complex directory structure

  • Add flexibility in the way Apache Oozie manages its Apache Tomcat application

  • Add a new standard location to install SQL connectors and other plug-ins

Also this releases fixes:

  • Libsnappy is now included in Apache Hadoop packages

  • Clean up some dependencies throughout our packages

  • Update to our documentation

Of course this release brings its set of upgrades:

  • Apache Hadoop 2.0.6-alpha

  • Apache Giraph 1.0.0

  • Apache Flume 1.4.0

  • Apache Pig datafu 1.0.0

  • Apache Crunch 0.7.0

  • Apache HBbase 0.94.12

  • Apache Hive 0.11.0

  • Hue 2.5.1

  • Apache Mahout 0.7.5

  • Apache Solr 4.5.0

And as usual Apache Bigtop supports and provide convenience artifacts for a wide array of GNU/Linux distributions:

  • Centos 5

  • Centos 6

  • Fedora 17

  • Fedora 18

  • Ubuntu Lucid

  • Ubuntu Precise

  • Ubuntu Quetzal

  • OpenSUSE 12

  • SLES11

With convenience repositories available: from http://www.apache.org/dist/bigtop/bigtop-0.7.0/repos/

Overall Apache Bigtop 0.7.0 is a great release and is in the continuity of what the previous ones brought to the field:

  • Stability

  • Reliability

  • Feature rich

The first release candidate uncovered a few issues which were promptly fixed for the following and last release candidate RC1.

As a developer of the distribution and a user, everything felt right and worked out of the box. I was even able to set up in a very short time an Apache Hadoop cluster shipping its logs to Apache Flume and aggregating them into an ElasticSearch cluster. Everything being visualized with Kibana.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the members Apache Bigtop community for all the effort put into such a great community and distribution.

I would also like to encourage everyone to give a try to our latest release and to not hesitate to come in, participate and give any feedback on our mailing lists: http://bigtop.apache.org/mail-lists.html  .

What is Bigtop, and Why Should You Care?

Ever since Apache Bigtop entered an incubation, we've been answering a very basic question: what exactly is Bigtop and why should you or anyone in the Apache (or Hadoop) community care. The earliest and the most succinct answer (the one used for the Apache Incubator proposal) simply stated that "Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Hadoop ecosystem". That was a nice explanation of how Bigtop relates to the rest of the Apache Software Foundation's (ASF) Hadoop ecosystem projects, yet it doesn't really help you understand the aspirations of Bigtop that go beyond what the ASF has traditionally done.
