HUE is a web interface for Hadoop, and a platform for building custom applications with a rich framework. The 1.0 release delivers several new features:

The majority of bug fixes in HUE 1.0 are for small UI glitches across different browsers. To highlight some other key areas:

1. Application Compatibility

The Hadoop file system library (hadoop.fs.hadoopfs) now takes and returns unicode strings for all file paths. Other than that, HUE 1.0 is compatible with applications written for HUE 0.9.x.

At the UI framework level, we migrated most elements from JFrame filters to Behaviour. This allows us to manage memory better and scale better as we introduce more behaviour patterns. The changes are backward compatible, but SDK developers should start using the new behaviour patterns. We have updated the JFrame Gallery examples, and added new ones, to demonstrate the usage.
