I'm wondering if you have an approximate release plan for HDP 2.7.
What I'm after in particular is a newer version of HBase (1.2.x at least). Will the new HDP include this?
If not, is it possible to upgrade HBase separately in an HDP cluster?
I don't know any official information about a new release. For sure Iam also interested in any information about that. As a small hint, you can see how the release cycle was in the past: (need to scroll downwards)
Regarding your seperate upgrade of HBase, I tried something similar with Ranger. Maybe it can help you:
