    • Release Note:
      New configuration option dfs.umaskmode sets umask with octal or symbolic value.

      Description

      Currently, the settings for the default umask in Hadoop configuration files require the input format be in decimal. Considering that every admin in the world thinks of permissions in octal and/or symbolic format, the config files should really use those two formats and drop decimal.

      [... and, yes, I'm aware this breaks backwards compatibility. But in this case, I think that is perfectly acceptable.]
