Announcing: Cloudera Impala 1.1.1

Master Collaborator

Hello CDH, Impala and Cloudera Manager Users,

We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Impala version: 1.1.1. This is a maintenance release that contains defect fixes and improvements including the following:

  • Additional security feature: auditing events. New startup options for impalad let you capture information about Impala queries that succeed or are blocked due to insufficient privileges. These events will also be integrated into an upcoming release of Cloudera Navigator. For details, see Impala Security.
  • Parquet data files generated by Impala 1.1.1 are now compatible with the Parquet support in Hive. See Incompatible Changes on page 11 for the procedure to update older Impala-created Parquet files to be compatible with the Hive Parquet support.
  • Additional improvements to stability and resource utilization for Impala queries.
  • Additional enhancements for compatibility with existing file formats.

For a full list of features and fixes, see the Impala Release Notes
