Ambari release versioning

Hi,

Can somebody explain about Ambari version naming standard?

Looking similar to HDP https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/41422/question-on-hdp-versioning.html

Thanks @Mats Johansson so as per doc (<major>.<minor>.<maintenance> ) if I'm using Ambari 2.2.1 and want to upgrade to 2.2.2 then that will be a maintenance release upgrade with no new feature addition, right?.

Hi @Jitendra,

Please have a look at http://hadoop.apache.org/versioning.html - It cover Ambari as well.

Thanks @Mats Johansson so as per doc (<major>.<minor>.<maintenance> ) if I'm using Ambari 2.2.1 and want to upgrade to 2.2.2 then that will be a maintenance release upgrade with no new feature addition, right?.

@Jitendra Yadav

Correct. That is a maintenance release dealing with bugs associated with features that already part of the release.

Thanks @Constantin Stanca But wondering why Ambari 2.2.2 has new feature (Grafana) even it was a maintainence release.

@Jitendra Yadav

Good question. It shouldn't. Occasionally, a feature may slip in. As long as it is not a major change, it is probably something tolerated. It could be also a Tech Preview which is probably the case with Grafana and that is probably fine. Did that feature break an existent functionality?

Correct, if the change is non-destructive, it will be considered for a maint. release. But I should point out that the community tries to minimize this though. Cheers.
