Start of a new era: Apache HBase™ 1.0

Start of a new era: Apache HBase™ 1.0

From the post:

The Apache HBase community has released Apache HBase 1.0.0. Seven years in the making, it marks a major milestone in the Apache HBase project’s development, offers some exciting features and new API’s without sacrificing stability, and is both on-wire and on-disk compatible with HBase 0.98.x.

In this blog, we look at the past, present and future of Apache HBase project. 

The 1.0.0 release has three goals:

1) to lay a stable foundation for future 1.x releases;

2) to stabilize running HBase cluster and its clients; and

3) make versioning and compatibility dimensions explicit 

Seven (7) years is a long time so kudos to everyone who contributed to getting Apache HBase to this point!
