avro 1.8.x

Hello All,

 

I wasn't sure where to put this question. I'm wondering if there are any plans to include avro 1.8.x in a near term CDH release. 

 

Cheers,

Re: avro 1.8.x

Apache Avro's major release 1.8.x brings in some backward-incompatibilities with it [1] and rebasing CDH5 to provide that as a whole would break existing clients.

is there a specific 1.8.x fix or feature that you are interested in particular, such that that may be requested for a backport to the CDH5 version of Avro?
