Checksums and signatures were OK.
I also ran an API compatibility check
and it passed.
There were three errors, all false positives:
"E1.2 - API type removed" : field public final static int
org.apache.hadoop.fs.HarFileSystem.VERSION = 1
"E1.2 - API type removed" : method public
"E1.2 - API type removed" : CLASS public static
In the first, the value changed from 1 to 3, which is a problem for
clients that reference these constants. We recommend that users
recompile their code, so this is not a problem. Still, we could
improve this situation in future
The second is is because getQueueAclsForCurrentUser returns a
QueueAclsInfo (a Writable) which was made public in 205.
The third is for a private inner class.
