I have created a candidate build for Hadoop 0.21.0. This fixes over
one thousand issues in Common, HDFS, and MapReduce since 0.20.2.
This release is being classified as a minor release, which means that
it is API compatible with 0.20.2.
*** This release candidate has not been tested extensively, so it
should not be considered stable.
*** Please download, test and vote before the vote closes on Thursday 8 July.
The hadoop-0.21.0.tar.gz file is an old-style combined release which
includes Common, HDFS, and MapReduce.
P.S. I have not yet pushed the JARs to Apache's Maven Staging
Repository (see HADOOP-6847), but this shouldn't prevent testing and
voting while it is sorted out.
