At the last Hive contributor meeting, we tentatively resolved to do a time-based release ASAP since so much has buffered up already. There were suggestions for various features we might want to consider getting into 0.7, but none were identified as "must". Some features (such as indexing) are currently in an incomplete state for end users, so we should call those out as part of the release.

Carl Steinbach will be doing release management again for 0.7, so he can fill in more details as plans shape up.

+1 for shorter release cycles.

Currently, is it time based or feature based ? If time based, whats
the timeline for 0.7 and if its feature based, which features are
"must" for 0.7 release?

We branched 0.6 quite early and by that point we were only backporting blockers for the release.

We're hoping we can make the 0.7 release cycle a lot shorter, and HIVE-1226 will be in there for sure.

Thanks John. Just curious, I see the last commit for HIVE-1226 was almost a month before the 0.6.0 release and I'm wondering why it didn't get into the release.

Also, I agree theres a lot of duplicated code and will be happy to help out in a refactoring effort.

HIVE-1226 (support for pushing filters down into storage handlers) is only in trunk (not 0.6).

Separately: as a followup to HIVE-1434, it would be good to plan a refactoring across the handlers for HBase/Hypertable/Cassandra since there is a lot of duplicated code.

I'm taking another pass over the Hypertable Hive storage handler and adding a bit more functionality to it (including regexp filtering). I was also planning to upgrade the Hive version it uses from something between 0.4 & 0.5 to 0.6. In this regard, my preference is to upgrade to 0.6 but I'm wondering if theres any post 0.6 commits that would be particularly useful as to justify using the bleeding edge instead of the 0.6 release.
