Hue v2.1.0, released October 2nd, 2012

This is the release of Hue 2.1.0. Hue 2.1.0 is compatible with CDH4.1 (Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop 4.1).

Notable Features

  • Hue now provides an Apache Oozie application for creating workflows of Apache MapReduce, Apache Pig, Apache Hive, Apache Sqoop, Java, Shell, Ssh and Streaming jobs and scheduling them repetitively (HUE-755).
  • Hue is now available in German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Brazilian and simplified Chinese (HUE-758).

Notable Fixes

  • HUE-755 [jobsub] Support Oozie workflows with sequential actions
  • HUE-612 Show retired jobs in the job browser
  • HUE-206 Browsing a large directory slow for IE
