Why the Apache Mahout is deprecated and what's the alternatives ?!

Hi all,

I have read in the Mahout Installation docs that it was deprecated since CDH 5.5 and it will be removed at CDH 6.0 as I see in the Deprecated items.
Any idea about the why? and the alternatives?

Thanks in advance.

Briefly: Because Apache Spark is a capable - and far more powerful - replacement.

Thanks @Matt Brandwein.

From a computational force point of view, yes (knowing that Mahout also uses Spark),but what about the Mahout algorithms library? is Spark has some libriries too?

In fact, the answer is yes, I found that Spark has the MLlib Library for Machine Learning algorithms, and it seems great.
