We haven't touched the HBase versioning in a good while. When a new user heads over to the HBase site, they are directed to the 'stable' release which is currently sitting at 0.94.4.
I realise that we have (legacy) support for the 0.90.X branch of HBase, but from what I can see, there is no current justification for this decision and it is also not within any strategic short/medium/long term objectives of Gora.
This issue should
*Enable us to discuss what Hbase branch we wish to support moving forward
*Actually implement the upgrade which gathers most consensus.
