I've just upgraded our cluster to CDH 5.7.0.
I then looked at the installed components list and noticed that Hadoop / HDFS / MR2 / Yarn is still in version 2.6.0.
- How come these ground components are old by now, with other platforms going 2.7.1 - 2.7.2 by now?
I saw the release notes, but is there a good reason why Cloudera stopped at 2.6.0 and put in a ton of bug fixes and other features of their own here,
I was wondering if this was a position that was taken because of problems with 2.7.x or perhaps Cloudera not being in agreement with the Apache development of the ground components?
Or maybe a deliberate decision just to focus more dev attention on Spark more than MR components?
