I was under the impression that 0.23.3 is the latest Hadoop release (being released 2 months after 2.0.1-alpha). In fact, the 2.0.0-alpha release notes identify that release as 0.23.1:
So if this is 0.23.1, shouldn't 0.23.3 be newer, just not yet rebranded as 2.0.2-alpha (or 2.0.1-beta?). And in SVN, they all seem to go with 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT or so already... Versionitis, as pushed by IOS/Chrome/Firefox I guess. There is an internal version number, and a marketing version number. This is at least he impression I had.
The apache web site somewhere also says:
.bq 0.23.X - simmilar to 2.X.X but missing NN HA.
I do not need NN HA, as I currently have only three nodes.
Anyway, if I recall correctly, I had the same issue when trying to build Hadoop "trunk", that -Pfuse was removed. So I belive this was a decision done at upstream Hadoop, and that's why I filed this with BIGTOP.
Can you build the latest hadoop with bigtop, not 2.0.0-alpha as in bigtop trunk?
