Sentry 1.5.1 release annoucement

                                 Apache Sentry 1.5.1-Incubating released!

On July 16, the Apache Sentry community announced the release of Apache Sentry 1.5.1-incubating. Significant work has gone into this release which includes 8 major features, 18 improvements and 131 defects fixes.

The following are the important features in this release:
1. Column-level access control: This feature provides the access control on column level support for the component such as HIVE.  
2. More granular privileges to the DBModel: This feature adds more privilege types like CREATE, DROP, INDEX, LOCK etc. 
3. High availability for Sentry service: Provide the option of running more redundant Sentry instances in the same cluster with a hot standby. This allows a fast failover to a new Sentry instance seamlessly in the case of outages.
4. Solr Sentry plug-in integration with DB store: Solr can persist the security policies into a database store like the hive plugin does. This new feature leverages the generic authorization model framework (which is also one new feature added in this release).

The complete list of bugfixes, improvements and features in Sentry 1.5.1-incubating can be viewed at: http://s.apache.org/hVw

Note: Updated from 1.5.0 to 1.5.1 release as 1.5.0 release was defuncted 


Sentry 1.5.0 supports column level authorization but I am not finding any link or tutorial on how to specify that in the property file. Please help me with that. Also could you please provide me the download link for this Sentry 1.5.0. Thank you.
